BLU Products' VIVO 4.3 rocks dual-core CPU, Super AMOLED Plus screen and two SIM card slots

The everything-but-famous handset maker BLU Products unveiled a new product, VIVO 4.3, touting it as the “world’s first dual SIM smartphone device to feature Super AMOLED Plus technology and dual-core CPU.” The mid-end smartphone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is designed to “capitalize on the explosive growth and demand of Dual SIM smartphone devices in emerging markets” as well “as “increased demand for unlocked smartphone devices in US MVNO channels.”

Specs wise, it rocks a MediaTek MT6577 dual-core 1GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, 4.3-inch WVGA screen, HSPA connectivity, 8-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing one and 4GB of internal storage. We guess other standard goodies come included as well — like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and other sensors — though they’re not mentioned in the press release. As for the price, the unlocked VIVO 4.3 will begin shipping to major US retailers in September 2012 with an MSRP of $249.99 and will soon follow through Latin America, and parts of Asia.

    on a serious note however it looks like an awesome phone and i wouldn’t mind owning one. but for now i cant find an excuse to make use of a dual sim phone unless i had a sim from a cell company that had decent international rates.

      There are professionals who have a work and personal phone. Which is an good excuse for working productive people. 

      • there is that but the thought of drunk dialing a business contact while at a party or butt dialing the same person would be a fear of mine. Also having 2 separate phones allows for some play between work and everyday. Have a sleek black professional looking phone with a sensible ringtone for work then a wild multicolored phone with crazy things on it  for home, going out, or otherwise having fun. Also added security that none of your business contacts would get leaked out if your personal phone got lost.

    Still nothing, where and when can we buy it?
