Huawei recently announced the availability of an affordable dual-SIM Android smartphone to the market, the Ascend Y210D which they anticipate to be a hot-selling phone for 2013.
The Huawei Ascend Y210D is as basic as it gets for an Android phone today but can still meet the needs of a casual smartphone user. It’s biggest appeal would be the dual-SIM capability at a sub-Php3k price point.
It has a 3.5-inch screen and is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor with 256MB RAM and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Rear camera is at 2-megapixels with no front-facing one. It runs on a 1700mAh battery which should go a long way for this entry-level dual-SIM phone.
Huawei Ascend Y210D is now available for PhP2,990 at MemoXpress shops (nationwide); Globotel Greenbelt 1, Bluelite, 2823 Sta Lucia, BSD SM Megamall, Techno Mobile, Comcentre, and Mobile Networks in Metro Manila; RC Goldline shops in Cebu; and Tekpone shops in Davao.
