Finnish handset-maker Nokia
has introduced two dual-sim phones
in the Indian market - Nokia C2-00 and Nokia X1-01. The two phones are looking to set benchmarks in the dual-sim category for more memory, better battery life and richer SIM change and entertainment features.
Nokia crossed the 500-million mobile phone manufacturing mark at its Chennai plant recently. The company, which entered India in 2006 and spent $150 million as investment on its first plant, began with producing basic handsets.Buying a smartphone? Check out the Top 10 in the market
