This is a rather belated note of clarification on my previous blog post on Cherry Mobile and its triple SIM phone, Trident. The guys of Torque Mobile, notably Mr. Chris Uyco, nudged me to clarify that Torque TQ800 Trinity has the distinction of being the country’s first triple SIM phone, contrary to the claims of their close competitor.
“While Cherry mobile launched their Trident ad on July 1, Torque Mobile released its official press statement announcing the first Triple SIM phone on May 26, 2010,” said Torque, one of the newest players in the lucrative mobile phone market.
If I may offer my unsolicited advice to tech companies and their PR agents, it is always wise to conduct an email blast whenever you launch what you believe to be a revolutionary product. After all, email is FREE 😀 There’s no reason to be stingy or selective with this one. And bloggers like us are always in need of useful information.
Take for instance triple SIM phones. I will always be curious about them, even though I don’t see the need for one in my life. I think the whole idea is amazing, especially for people who have extensive interests and social networks.
