Those two models do not support dual SIM and they never will.

Re: DualSim in Windows 8 Mobile

you dont see any high-end devices from any manufacturer on any platform that have dual-SIM functionality, so i doubt that this feature will come to Windows Phone anytime soon unfortunately.

Re: DualSim in Windows 8 Mobile

Not exactly high end, but very close to the upper mid range:

Galaxy S Duos (they have a bunch of other Android Dual Sim phones)

HTC Desire V

 

With this attitude, it is no surprise that Nokia is losing the battle.

Re: DualSim in Windows 8 Mobile

Nokia is hardky losing the battle. The phones you mention are midrange at best so the point is still very much valid.

Dual sim has never been available in high end smartphone for any of the Nokia's competitors.....

Re: DualSim in Windows 8 Mobile

Regardless of availability in competitors models or position in ranges it would need Microsoft to add and enable support for dual sims in the operating system before Nokia could produce WP8 device with that feature.

I do expect to see it happen sometime in the future, but at this stage only Microsoft can answer when.

Re: DualSim in Windows 8 Mobile

Market Situation is changing fast in India now

and Dual Sim is need of  the time

with high end mobiles too.

 

Lenovo have good Android Phones with Dual Sim

and are quite good.

There are many manufacturers trying to address this market demand.

If Windows can make an afordable phone with most of the features

will help it gaining the market share.

It seems Nokia is getting aggressive in the Mobile Market  of India.

A Dual Sim Windows Mobile will be a better Idea.
