Smart Communcations is offering a new Lenovo dual SIM Android phone, the Lenovo A65.
The phone has a decently sized 3.5-inch display with a 320 x 480 resolution. It is powered by a single core 800 MHz processor, on a Mediatek chip, and 256 MB or RAM. At present the phone runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), and given the 256 MB of RAM and processor, we do not expect it to be upgraded to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The other specifications of this phone are not all that interesting.
The main draw of this phone is its dual SIM (dual standby) capability. I am not sure if one SIM slow is unlocked though. I have queried Smart, but I still do not have a response. Curiously enough, the phone is bundled with a broadband SIM, with Php100 load consumable within 30 days. It makes we think that both SIM slots may be locked.
The asking price is a decent Php5,490. This would be a good deal if at least one SIM slot is unlocked.
