Torque Dual-SIM Android Phones on Sale!

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

 

Torque is a budding local mobile phone brand that offers very affordable handsets.  It is quite similar to Cherry Mobile and MyPhone which both offer super-cheap mobile phones.

Torque claims to have the first dual-SIM Android phones in the market. Considering that I am currently not aware of any other Android phone with dual-SIM capabilities, I believe in what Torque is claiming.

Being offered on introductory sale very soon are two Torque dual-SIM phones named Droidz Tandem and Droidz Dual.   The sale is happening on two announced dates: April 16-17, 2011.  The phones’ features are pretty impressive, although it remains to be seen if they will withstand heavy use.  Torque offers 12-month warranties on these handsets but I am not aware how the company is in terms of after-sales support.

Here are the features of the two Android phones included in the introductory sale.

    I won’t buy any of these unless Torque support future updates 🙂

    • technobaboy Reply

      Wow they’re cheaper. Although because they are substandard maybe warranty is important.

      • Yep,sure do.. They are under warranty but then you have to shoulder the fees in sending these phones back to their office which is located in Hong Kong XD

        So if someone is willing to buy a phone from that site, then that person should start praying to God that the phone he’s going to get isn’t defective.. haha jk

        • technobaboy Reply

          haha. pray hard he should. di mo pa alam kung babalik ang phone mo pag sinend mo sa HK 🙂

            There is after sales available here in philippines, located at Chino roces la fuerza plaza room 415, don’t worry bout the after sales support i will assuring that torque are always taking care there client need. 

  8. can this android be updated to the latest version if updates are available?

    • technobaboy Reply

      There’s no telling. Considering that these are local releases, and probably without customization, updates may not be offered.

    Ang mga Spec nila sa android phone nila bagay sa 5 to 6k lang… over price tlga

    • technobaboy Reply

      You may be right. These phones appear to be China-made. The screen resolution might have been sacrificed to make these cheap.

  10. technobaboy Reply

    haha. you may be right. medyo secretive itong torque pagdating sa CPU specs. it’s not in the specs list which can be seen from their site.

  11. Baka yung OEM Manufacturer nila eh yung 400 Mhz CPU na naman. Talamak na yung mga ganung specs sa China. :S
