The Dual SIM Mobile Phones are actually a very India specific phenomenon. Indian companies like Micromax came up with dual SIM phones to take advantage of Indians desire to get the best of both worlds by using different plans for local and STD calls. Most intenational companies like Nokia and Samsung were unwilling to come up with a dual SIM phone but finally they had to give up in front of strong consumer demamnd. While Nokia has got only 2 dual sim mobile phones, it can be seen from this page about samsung dual sim mobile price in India that there are a large number of samsung dual sim mobiles in India.
