Philips new Xenium X510 dual sim phone is a welcome within the market of two sim card phones, although Philips is a new player which will be competing alongside existing well respected handset makers (namely Samsung and LG) it recognizes the potential and trend in the high demanding type of phone.
These type of handsets are common in countries like India, China and Russia where it is a popular phone type for beneficial reasons such as it being economical (in other words cheaper to own one) especially for travelling business people roaming packages, also for convenience sake (no hassle to carry two different phones around).
