It seems that the Cherry Mobile Trident isn’t the first triple-SIM phone out in the market. According to this article, Torque’s Trinity was already out since June. It’s just that they were a day late with their ads.
Anyway, both triple-SIM phones will be a sure-hit to the public who still finds a dual-sim phone lacking. They both look the same and have almost the same price but how about in the features department?
Here’s a side-by-side specs* of both the Cherry Mobile Trident (Q300) and Torque Trinity (TQ800).
|Cherry Mobile Trident (Q300)||Torque Trinity (TQ800)|
|Quad Band GSM||Quad Band GSM|
|2.46″ TFT LCD||2.4″ TFT LCD|
|320 x 240 pixels|
|Bluetooth 2.0||Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP|
|2 megapixel camera with flash||2 megapixel camera|
|microSD (up to 4GB)||microSD (up to 8GB)|
|Analog TV with Record||Free-To-Air Mobile TV|
|FM Radio with Record||FM Radio|
|JAVA/ WAP 2.0 / GPRS|
Both the Cherry Mobile Trident and Torque Trinity almost have the same features. I’m not sure if the 8GB microSD capability of the Trinity is that useful unless you plan to shoot a lot of stuff with its 2-megapixel camera.
I guess for buyers, the major decision would have to be the looks. Now where is myPhone in this triple-SIM world?
*The specs are only from what I can glean from online materials. I’m not sure if the Trinity can also record TV shows or if its camera has flash and other specific features. If you own the phone, I would appreciate if you can confirm other features. Thanks! – Ed.
