so this is one core hmm?
i think zte v970 is good alternative for this gallant duo
zte got dual core mediatek, no onscreens buttons, and also dual core
zte is about 200 euros
by the way, i like the box, very nice idea acer had :D

JiaYu G3 indeed looks interesting, I'm wishing for one right when I saw it in the news almost 2 months ago.

The preorder price of US$89 was unbeatable but now I'm not so sure, it has more than doubled in retail.................I mentioned the JiaYu G3 on hindsight of the price in ratio to specs for comparison to this Acer Duo, anyways there are more dual SIM phones on the way soon.

The article is a bit out of date considering expansys.com just slapped a £160(ish) price tag on the mob..

The alternatives mentioned do now look more interesting..
cink slim - cool name heh?? - and JIAYU G3/JY. Only question is really where is safe and reputable to get these from..

That's only an £8 increase from when I bought it so... I wouldn't call this out of date?

I see where you come from. however, when people read and calculate the dufference with other phones, eg the h 300, then the gap is 60, not 50, and its hard to tell where people's red lines are..
Anyhow, the price jump made me consider other devices. both because it was a sudden and arbitrary one, and because it made the phone seem less of a bargain..

Does anyone know if this device would run a UK SIM and a foreign SIM (Portuguese specifically)?

@honix - thanks for the link!

http://www.ldlc.com/...wiko cink slim/

Interesting that on the above site, liquid gallant is at the more palatable price of roughly £148 equivallent..

eg - http://www.ldlc.com/...PB00135214.html

Do we always have to pay more in the uk..?

cheers!

Hi syscode,

hum...aren't you unhappy not to have to pay with Euro in UK ? i'm kidding. But you could pay more with Euro! (i don't see where the smileys are, lol !)

In Germany, the prices are usually still lower : Amazon ...

If you want cheap electronic devices provided your in the vicinity of Shenzhen; get a dark suntan, practice pidgeon English and head off to the SEG Plaza. You will also need to haggle very well..........be stubborn.
No point in waiting for the prices to drop, by the time it does lower, you'd be wanting something else.

hi Paul

the "metal trim" is in fact all plastic... mine -i have the White Duo- had its metal paint scratched since i didn't have a protection case!! its really upsetting..

so i'm asking : is the screen Scratch resistant anyhow? (i hope so)..

thanks
