Thoughts anyone? I know dual sim phones are huge in china, india, pakistan in some european countries and mostly in asia!

So I can see there is a big market for that HTC, and samsung are doing it with a 4" smartphone.

Although I think it's a nice to have (especially if you're travelling quite a bit to countries that have prepaid minute/data plans), but I'm not sure people will overlook things just to get the dual-sum capability.

This is how I see it!where there is a big market to grow apple will like to have a piece of it?! Millions of chinese and indians use dual sim phones and smartphones. So I think that's a sign of a really big market there.

I thinkyou're right. Apple knows it needs to target emerging markets but it's also a matter of whether the additional expense is worth it. Here in the US, AT&T and Verizon would hate the idea.

I think even though many people have a need for one, it's still a small niche market compared to the general mobile market.
Niche isn't Apple's style.
