Lately there was a lot of talk about mobile phones working with two SIM cards at the same time. And a lot of small Asian GSM manufacturers are offering quite cheap dual SIM mobile phones that do work quite good. And now it seems that bigger companies like Samsung are also turning to address the need of the users in using two different SIM cards at the same time, without having to wear to mobile phones with them everywhere they go. Samsung DuoS D880 Dual SIM Card Phone is a stylish slider that will offer the needed functionality, but it may be a bit too expensive for the people that are usually using more than one mobile phone. Apart from being able to work simultaneously with two SIM cards there is nothing else new or some other notable feature in the DuoS D880.

Does your mobile phone look ever so slightly dull? If the answer is yes, you could do with a few Fonies. These impossibly cute critters are set to take the world of mobile phone danglies (of course there’s one) by storm, because as well as being totally adorable they double up as screen cleaners. And while your beloved new companion may not appreciate being wiped all over a grubby screen, but after all your mobile’s screen is no longer an underused luxury; it’s an essential window to the wonders within, used for photography, picture messaging, gaming and more.
Screen cleaning aside, Fonies are a great way of personalizing your phone. And with several different characters to collect you can use them to change the appearance of your mobile to suit your every mood.
And while Fonies don’t light up, spin, dance, play tunes or even vibrate, but there’s something rather reassuring about dangling a squishy thingy from your phone. Maybe it’s their sheer simplicity that makes them so unfathomably desirable.
The Fonies will cost you about $8 each and there are quite a few different models.
