Yes , you read it right Triple SIM – 3 SIM Cards , Intex had launched the IN 5030 , it’s first triple sim(GSM + GSM + CDMA) mobile phone in India recently. You don’t have to wait for Mobile Number Portability to change your operator. You can carry 3 mobile numbers at the same time in this phone.
Check out the 3 sim card slots below – there’s Airtel, Idea for GSM and a Tata Indicom for CDMA
While receiving /making a call on one of the GSM connections, the CDMA connection remains active (and vice versa), hence the user could easily make a shift between the two numbers. The Java enabled handset comes with two batteries each providing talk time of 4 hours and stand-by of 120 hrs
We are reviewing this phone now and will let you know soon on how exactly the Triple SIM magic works.
And this phone is just not about the multiple sim feature, it packs a 1.3 MP Camera , comes loaded with a microSD card (expandable upto 4GB), supports Bluetooth , Java and has a Audio, Video player and FM Radio.
The Intex 5030 costs Rs.4700 approx and we shall be posting a review of the phone soon.
