LG answers the call for a compact dual-SIM Droid

Some people exist in two realms all the time, never taking a break between the two phone numbers they have. Rather than carry two mobiles, though, LG is offering a different way.

Joining the Optimus L series II is a new device aimed at delivering the power of two SIMs – and therefore two phone numbers – into a small handset size, making it easy to shrink down the need to carry separate mobiles and combine them into one product.

The LG Optimus L2 II Dual SIM is that product, offering a 3.2 inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) touchscreen with the hardware for two SIMs behind it, while packing in 4GB of storage, microSD support for up to 32GB more, Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean,” and support for 3G networks with a maximum of 7.2Mbps down.

Switching between the two SIMs is said to be very easy, with a “quick switch” button making it a lot less painful than having to browse through on-screen menus to find a software solution to do this.

A 3 megapixel camera is also included, as is a 1540mAh battery which should have enough juice for at least a day of life, and the product joins LG’s other Dual SIM-based products, sitting behind the L7 II and offering the technology in a smaller package.

It’s also a relatively inexpensive package, as Optus has grabbed the L2 II Dual SIM for $99 on prepaid, with stores grabbing the handset from October onwards.
