Nokia X1-01 hides two SIM cards underneath its cheerfully colored shell, both active at the same time. There are several key improvements however, like dual-standby, microSD card slot, MP3 player and dedicated music keys. This model comes with red, blue, orange and grey color.
We liked the Nokia C1-00 for what it was - an ultra-simple cell phone with a couple of SIM slots that let you make calls from either card. Now the Nokia X1-01 comes to make take the next step, adding dual-standby,.which means you can receive calls to both SIM cards at all times.
The X1-01 seems well fit for emerging markets, where one phone is shared among a whole family. Having two SIM cards facilitates such usage patterns, while two carefully selected call plans the monthly phone bill can be reduced. Also, there're five separate phonebooks maintained on the phone, so several people can use it without mixing up their contacts.
