Kazam covers all bases with six Android phones, all dual SIM

Kazam covers all bases with six Android phones, all dual SIMRemember Kazam? It’s the UK-based smartphone startup thingy headed by two former HTC executives, and they’ve just announced their first wave of Android-based phones.

Kazam looks to put the UK on the smartphone map with no less than six Android devices, all with dual SIM compatibility – somewhat of a rarity on these shores.

With regards to the dual SIM action, Kazam suggests – as seen in the banner above – that you might want to combine work and personal stuff in one phone, or use the second slot while travelling.

Another standout feature is Kazam Rescue, with agents able to remote access your phone. Sounds similar to Amazon Mayday, as found on the new Kindle Fire HDX tablets.

Kazam also offers "free crack screen replacement" for one year, though I’m guessing there’ll be terms and conditions hiding somewhere.

As for the six phones, they are:

Kazam Thunder Q4.5 – 4.5in display (480 x 854), 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage (augmentable via microSD), 8MP/2MP cameras, 1,800mAh removable battery, Jelly Bean Android 4.2

Kazam Trooper X5.5 – 5.5in display (480 x 854), 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage (augmentable via microSD), 5MP/VGA cameras, 2,500mAh removable battery, Jelly Bean Android 4.2

Kazam Trooper X5.0 – 5in display (480 x 854), 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage (augmentable via microSD), 5MP/VGA cameras, 2,000mAh removable battery, Jelly Bean Android 4.2

Kazam Trooper X4.5 – 4.5in display (480 x 854), 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage (augmentable via microSD), 5MP/VGA cameras, 1,750mAh removable battery, Jelly Bean Android 4.2

Kazam Trooper X4.0 – 4in display (480 x 800), 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage (augmentable via microSD), 5MP/VGA cameras, 1,550mAh removable battery, Jelly Bean Android 4.2

Kazam Trooper X3.5 – 3.5in display (320 x 480), 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage (augmentable via microSD), 3.2MP/VGA cameras, 1,300mAh removable battery, Jelly Bean Android 4.2

"Today's announcement proves that Kazam is not about gimmicks or corporate bullsh*t, but delivering real value, by taking a fresh approach to mobile," screams James Atkins, Kazam’s CMO.

"It is not enough to simply stand for one thing, Kazam must continue to invest in areas often overlooked, posing difficult questions and challenging convention."

Kazam pricing and availability will be announced shortly.

With the specs of a 12 months old Acer?

Exactly Jan.

First thing i thought when i looked in depth. Anyone looking for a dual sim phone can go to other companies and get better specs for less. (I'm assuming these phones will be over priced)

They are targeting everyone on Lebara, Delight, Vectone, Lyca, etc. MVNOs. They are only good for making cheap calls to third worlds countries and no other services. Most people end up with two phones - one for actual usage and another one for calling abroad. This is an opportunity to have single phone for both cases.
Nobody is their right mind will ever buy any of those phones for business purposes (unless it's delivery).

Who is building these, by the way? I'm sure the two ex-HTC dudes are not making them inbetween holes on the golf course?

NF Technology limited are a manufacturing company based in south China who design and manufacture the phones for them. They also design phones for other overseas companies as well.

Well, if these guys are ex-HTC management I now understand why HTC are doing so badly...

Thinking of it HTC might post a profit next quarter, now that they are not there anymore. :p

I'd be more concerned with the resolution on those.
Will be bad enough on a 4.5" but 5.5"!!!?
I suppose buyers at the low proce point aren't expecting 1080p but hope they're prepared for disappointment.
Can get better spec on DX but lacking in support.

Anymore than £100 and it's pointless.
