Product Review: Star C8000 Dual sim Quad band TV WIFI QWERTY Keyboard Cell Phone

Imagine having 2 phone numbers that people can contact you on, but only one phone. You can keep your work and private numbers separate, or keep a pre-paid card as a 'semi-burn' phone, but the benefits for frequent travelers is what I like most about the concept. 2 sim cards, 1 phone, no roaming charges on local calls to book accommodation and transport, but you're still contactable if your credit card company wishes to confirm a purchase (despite notifying them of your travel plans). This is the concept behind a dual-sim phone. As far as I know only Samsung and LG make dual sim phones, but the networks don't like it and don't promote them.

Long Time No See

To all my readers out there,

It has been over a year since I last posted here - and I have no-one to blame but myself.  Part of the reason for not writing in 2010 was because I was in a career transition and not getting out as much as I would've liked to, and then 2011 came around and I was getting out too much (despite still being in career transition) with no end in sight as yet (this is a good thing). 

Over the next while I plan to get back into the routine of keeping you updated with the interesting, sometimes weird and different things that I am up to in the buildup to my trip to Pakistan in August. 

Watch this space and I look forward to sharing some of the fun and stories from my recent experiences.
