The dual SIM functionality will allow you to use of sim cards in 1 phone and to connect to two different networks to receive calls and messages. The included Nokia SIM manager will allow you to select which SIM card to use and also to store the settings of up to five SIM cards on the phone, and to personalize them by assigning names and logos for each SIM setting. The Nokia 101 will be available in Q3 this year for about 25 euros (USD 35) and comes in Phantom Black and Coral Red.
The phones have dimensions of 110 mm x 45.5 mm x 14.9 mm and weigh about 6grams.
