While the Tipo dual is one of the very few Android ICS smartphones officially available in the US with dual SIM slots, the phone is best purchased as a cheap international travel device owing to the fact that dual SIM phones and compatible services are more common in parts of Europe and Asia, owing to the increased prepaid service competition leading to consumers choosing multiple services at once.
