after going through above comments, i would like to say that nokia has done the right thing by not manufacturing dual sim dual active mobiles as they cause major health hazzards.. And Nokia will give you such a quality which is very far from local manufacturers and even samsung..

Yes dude but we cannot always think of business.with huge business also comes huge responsibility and you know HEALTH IS WEALTH and some companies think about consumers and their well being and Nokia is one among them and one day due to any pressure or incident or scam the govt eyes may open and make strict enquiry into these issues of health effects and these local manufacturer will be chopped(remember what happened to china mobile for quite some time).

You are right. But who are now concerned with those health issues? I can bet 80-85% of common people don’t bother about health hazard by dual sim phones. Market has dual sim handset demand, this is the fact & everybody including nokia have to accept it.
You know, Tremerin, every thing has some pros & cons. If you concentrate on cons, it’s different issue. But then you have to reject your cellphone first as it’s the very root of various health hazard.
