HKC launch World’s First dual-SIM Windows Mobile Smartphones


Posted on April 11th, by Chris Davies in archive. 41 comments

After Samsung’s dual-SIM D780 the other day, I thought it’d be a while before we saw another new handset capable of operating two cellular accounts simultaneously, but HKC (not a typo) have surprised me with what they’re calling the world’s first dual-SIM Windows Mobile smartphones.  The design of the W1000 and G1000 (the former being dual CDMA and GSM, the latter dual GSM) may not light any new aesthetic fires, but their functionality is reasonable: a 200MHz Qualcomm CPU, 256MB ROM and 64MB RAM, microSD slot and USB, crowned by a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen.

HKC W1000

Of course, the real reason we’re interested is the ability to not only have two SIM cards fitted but to access them at the same time (or, in the case of the W1000, registered to a CDMA account as well as have a GSM SIM in place), including being able to separately deactivate one or the other from the Windows Mobile interface.  That way you could keep your personal account active (just in case your pregnant wife is about to give birth) but avoid the office calling you by turning off your business account. 

HKC G1000

Both versions are apparently available now, with 2-megapixel cameras, Bluetooth (with the A2DP wireless stereo profile) and the usual WM office suite. No WiFi or GPS, which HKC lose marks for, though there is a dedicated stock market hotkey.

Press Release:

The HKC Dual SIM Windows Mobile Series, W1000 & G1000

~ SIMply double your connectivity ~

April 10, 2008, Hong Kong – HKC, HKC Communication (Hong Kong) Limited., is proud to announce the launched of two pioneering models of dual SIM Card Windows Mobile Professional™ PDA phones with dual network (GSM + CDMA) or Dual Standby (GSM +GSM) capabilities.

The two members of the 1000 series, W1000 and G1000, both designed with a slim and stylist body are equipped with different double network capabilities.

The W1000 is equipped with one GSM and one CDMA SIM slot, making phone calls and data communication on different networks using one phone a possibility. The W1000 is a great communication tool for the frequent business flyer who travels to different countries with different network protocols. The W1000 makes calling simple without the hassle of changing SIM cards or misplacing SIM cards.

The G1000 on the other hand has two built-in GSM SIM slots, which allows voice and data communications between two different GSM networks concurrently. The user who needs to carry two phone numbers can simply insert the two GSM SIM cards into the G1000! There is no need to carry one extra phone in the pocket. This is ideal for frequent or seasoned travelers to maintain connectivity with his or her home country number and at the same time take advantage of the relatively cheap local charges by using an additional SIM card from the local mobile network.

The 1000 series was designed with both functionality and style in mind. The casing for both model are crafted in a cool dark titanium color with an easy to type keypad. Both models run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional, which gives seamless integration with thousands of third party software, making the user experience as personalized as possible. The Bluetooth™ feature is enabled, perfect for consumers on the move. To top off these qualities, its large 2.8” inch screen gives off crystal clear images making viewing multimedia on the go an enjoyable experience.

Other key features include:

  • A two megapixel macro-enabled camera
  • A micro SD memory card slot for adding up to 4GB storage space.
  • WorldCard Mobile software to manage business cards

The HKC 1000 series is the first two members of the HKC family and is now available for sale. For more detail specifications, please visit our official website: http://www.myhkc.com/en/index.asp or contact us by email: sales.m@fim18.com
