What makes the handset however so peculiar is the fact that it can accommodate two SIM cards. Check out our preview and hands-on of the Liquid E1 Duo smartphone here. If you don't need a second SIM slot, you might just as well consider the super and slight more expensive Acer CloudMobile S500 from the same retailer.
