Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos arrives in UK

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos arrives in UKWhat's this? More Samsung Galaxy handsets hitting the shelves? Yup - indeed. This one's aimed at those on a budget who clearly have some form of double life.

It's the Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos - originally announced back in May and now on general sale in the UK. Yours for the handsome price of around £200, depending on where you source it from.

The key selling point here is the fact that this phone can handle two sim cards within. So that means you can effectively have two different phone numbers working at the same time from within a single device. One number for the wife, one for the girlfriend. Or husband, and boyfriend. Or wife and boyfriend. Whatever floats your boat.

The other specs aren't really anything to write home about. As the world starts to benefit from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (slowly), the Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos is still on Gingerbread. Yep. Not even Ice Cream Sandwhich 4.0 but Android 2.3, with very little prospect of being upgraded to the newer OSs. Not that we're surprised. Or even saddened. Gingerbread is, after all, a very capable OS and one that budget users will have zero problems with.

The screen spans 3.5-inches and is of the HVGA flavour. There are also two cameras - a VGA one around the front and 5MP jobby on the rear. Processing power isn't the best around at sub 1GHz but you do get 512MB of RAM and 3GB storage to play with. This can, of course, be expanded through the use of MicroSD card.

Shop around for this baby as prices vary. And make sure you don't send your text to the wrong person by mistake. That's got the potential to ruin a relationship.

For £200, you might as well buy two Huawei G300s, which are better specced than this Samsung branded handset.

rather would have thought dual sims would be more for like business/personal phones in one rather than infidelity!
