Nokia aims at developing countries and mass markets by planing a dual-SIM Windows Phone, Moneypenny, according to the popular leakster – @evleaks.
Early, this month we have got few of the codenames of Nokia’s upcoming mobile phones, such as Moneypenny, Normandi, Phantom, Goldfinger and Spinel. In those names, Goldfinger might be a high-end device with Nokia’s own “3D Touch” technology through which users can navigate, flip and scroll the touchscreen interface without even touching the screen. According to the @Evleaks’ tweet, Moneypenny would be a dua-SIM budget friendly smartphone with Windows Phone 8.1 (Blue), however, may reports also claimed that these devices will be packed with newest Windows Phone 8 with GDR3 Update.

Whatever it may be, the dual-SIM users found in Asia, especially India would be happy about learning this revelation. Microsoft ‘s Windows Phone OS, which managed to climb to the Number 2 position in Latin American countries by the help of budget-friendly smartphone’s like Nokia Lumia 520, will also have huge chance of earning some positions in developing countries. However, the device might not appear in U.S. or Western European countries.
The dual SIM Windows Phone smartphone might come to the market in mid-2014 as some reports claims that Microsoft would be launching the Windows Phone 8.1 Blue mobile OS at MWC 2014 on 24-27 February. Moreover, with the upgraded Nokia Lumia 525, the Nokia Monepenny would aim to get back the market share, once again in developing countries.
