In a media event earlier today at Harold’s Hotel in Lahug Cebu, Nokia introduced the Nokia C2-00 and Nokia X1-01, which are the first Dual-SIM handsets from the Finnish phone maker to hit the Philippine market.

With the Nokia X1-01 you can give each SIM card its own logo, music signature or ringtone – personalization features that you can only get from Nokia! The phone also offers what is simply the best Dual SIM music experience on the market. You can store and shuffle THOUSANDS of songs with up to 16 GB of memory support, create your own favorite playlists, and play your music back over a loudspeaker that is the loudest and clearest ever produced by Nokia. The phone also features dedicated music side keys and a battery that will last for up to 36 hours of continued music playback!

The Nokia C2-00 is the first Dual SIM phone to have Easy Swap, which offers you the convenience of changing SIM cards without the need to turn off the phone or remove the battery. Just open the SIM door at the side of the phone and swap your SIMs. It’s as easy as that! No more waiting for the phone to reboot. With the Nokia C2-00 you can also browse the internet, read emails and enjoy instant messaging with either SIM card. Not only is the internet browsing experience far superior than that available on competing Dual SIM products, but so too is the memory support.

Nikka Abes, Corporate Communications Manager at Nokia Philippines, said that both handsets would hit Nokia stores in the country anytime soon. Though less specific regarding the phones availability, I would guess we’ll be seeing the handsets in local shelves later this month or in the early weeks of July. The Nokia X1-01 would be available in Dark Grey, Red, Ocean Blue, and Orange colors; and Nokia C2-00 would be available in colors Dynamic Grey, Jet Black, Magenta, and Snow White.

Suggested retail price of Nokia X1-01 is Php 1,990 while Nokia C2-00 will be priced at Php 2,990.
