Matsunichi's dual-SIM D620

September 11, 2007 Plenty of people these days have multiple SIM cards for their mobile phones; business and personal, personal and VERY personal, different SIM cards for better rates at night, or in foreign countries. Matsunichi’s D620 is among a small number of mobile phones coming out that can handle two SIM cards at once – meaning you can choose which number you dial out from, and receive calls to both numbers.

An interesting device we spotted at the Berlin IFA Consumer Electronics show, the Matsunichi D620 is a regular, mid-market spec mobile phone but for its ability to manage dual SIM cards.

It’s a dual-band GSM phone featuring GPRS, WAP, Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel integrated camera, and the standard sorts of multimedia playback functions you’d expect from an average phone. Twin SIM slots in the back let you put up to two cards in, and the software manages both simultaneously from there. A simple and effective idea.

Matsunichi Europe GmbH, located in Germany, is a subsidiary of the Hong Kong-based Matsunichi group. Release details and pricing are scant at this stage but we will keep you posted.
