Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos announced

Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos announcedYou might remember Samsung’s new naming convention defines its Y range as entry-level handsets aimed at emerging markets and Young users.

We’ve already got the suitably modest Samsung Galaxy Y, and now Sammo is adding two more to the Y fold, namely the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and the QWERTY-rocking Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos.

As the name sort-of implies, both the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos support dual SIM action with seamless switching.

"With the tremendous success of the Dual SIM feature phones, we are now very pleased to be introducing the first Dual SIM smartphones powered by Android. We have been actively exploring this market and are well aware of the need for Dual SIM smartphones," screamed JK Shin, President of Samsung Electronics’ IT & Mobile Comms Division.

"With the Galaxy Y Duos and the Galaxy Y Pro Duos, Samsung will be offering more choices for all consumers."

The Samsung Galaxy Y Duos has a 3.14in QVGA display, while the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos weighs in at 2.6in to accommodate the keyboard. Both have a 3MP rear camera and 832MHz processor, and run Gingerbread (Android 2.3) with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.

Availability in Europe? January.

A dual SIM phone aimed at young people (aka kids)? Even though the only people who have two numbers are adults with work numbers (and drug dealers :p), smart move, Samsung.

I don't think it's aimed at kids. Just Y is their all-encompassing low-end handsets, which just happens to stand for Youth. 8)

I'm sure both of those two groups feel the need to run two SIM cards almost constantly ;).

I just don't see the demand in the UK for dual sim products, I can't see many, if any, networks offering these products.

Dual SIM phones, the saviour of forgetful drug dealers who never remember to take both phones with them ;).
