Samsung Galaxy Y Duos - as its very name suggests - is the Dual SIM Dual Standby version of the Yuletide best-seller teen-favorite Android-powered, Samsung Galaxy Y.

So let me share my first impressions of the handset:

1. Just looking at its name, it's easy to imagine that this phone would look exactly like Samsung Galaxy Y. But actually, it doesn't. In fact, it dons a different design altogether. Duos is a tad bigger, has thicker metallic accents and as such, is slightly heavier. I'll post a design comparison entry with lots of photos to prove this soon.

2. The two SIM card slots of Duos are behind the battery so you'd have to turn off the phone and remove the back cover should you want to swap SIM cards.

3. Duos' screen is 0.15-inch wider diagonally than that of the single-SIM version. The display quality is just the same though. Both have 240 x 320 pixels resolution and only shows 256K colors.

4. Both Samsung Galaxy Y and Samsung Galaxy Y Duos run Android Gingerbread operating system with an 832 MHz processor so you get almost similar performance. When it comes to multitasking though, Duos should be a tad better as it has more RAM.

5. Being a Dual SIM phone, Duos has a SIM Card Manager in the Android Settings which lets you activate or deactivate SIMs, choose which SIM to use for your Data Service as well as opt to receive incoming calls via other SIM card while using data service.

That's it for now, TP Friends. Stay tuned for our full review.
