Nokia plans to foray into the dual SIM handset market in India with the launch of its first dual SIM device by September end this year.
“Globally, C1 and C2, dual SIM mobile from Nokia, are already available. In India we’ll launch our dual SIM device in this quarter,” said V Ramnath, director, operator business, Nokia India.
The dual SIM devices market is pegged at about Rs 2,200 crore annually and is the fastest growing segment of the handset industry.
The Finnish handset giant had earlier globally unveiled its C series mobile phones in June.
The C1 is expected to be launched in the third quarter, while C2 is expected to be made available in quarter four.
C1 will allow the user to carry two SIM cards, while only one can be activated at a time. On the other hand, C2 will support both SIMs working simultaneously.
While the Nokia C1 will be priced at approximately Rs 1,750; the C2 will be priced at around Rs 2,500.
Ramnath also said that the Ovi Store for India will be launched very soon.
Once the India version of the Nokia Ovi App store is launched, users will be able to make payments for the applications they download in Indian Rupees. Currently, prices shown for applications are in Euros.
The store will also have Indian rich media content.
