No plan for dual SIM phones yet – Sony Ericsson

Mobile phones manufacturer, Sony Ericsson has said that it does not have plans to delve into the manufacturing of dual Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) phones.

Disclosing this at the just ended three-day West African International Information and Communication Technology (ICT) exhibition (W.Afri.Tel-08), in Lagos, Regional Director for Africa, Sony Ericsson, Mr. Martijn Lutgerink said there are no plans currently in this regard which is making wave in Nigeria due to multiple lines usage by individual subscribers who want to be connected always.

Accompanied to the exhibition by the Head, Marketing Southern Africa, Ms Shonja Shear, Country Accounts Manager for Nigeria, Mr. Emeka Nkpa, and Head of Sales, Ms Nocllen Janse Van Rensburg, the regional director noted that though the mobile company has lots of new products lined up for this year, there is no roadmap for dual SIM phones.

“Currently, we do not have a roadmap for dual SIM phones. No, that is not on our programme now,” he told newsmen during a chat.

According to him, Sony Ericsson has other inspirational mobile phones slated for marketing in the continent and Nigerian market precisely.

“… For the dual SIM phones, it’s not on the roadmap yet,” Lutgerink said, stressing that the firm, a joint venture founded seven years ago by Japanese consumer electronics company Sony Corporation and the Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson to manufacture mobile phones, recognizes Nigeria as an important market.

He pointed out that the establishment of Sony Ericsson’s office in Nigeria was not by mistake, but due to its strategic importance to the mobile company.Nigeria, he said, is one of the most important markets on the continent.
