First Look A Kickstarter project to assemble a dual-SIM iPhone is de facto a seperate phone which the iPhone connects to via Bluetooth.

The Kickstarter campaign for the 'PIECE' claims it will "Change The Pathway You Applicability Apt Phones".

It goes on: "Carrying two phones isnconvenient! [sic] It is not fashionable or stylish; it costs a parcel and is a fritter of space." The belief - rather than move two phones, bring one phone and this gizmo.

This cuts down the numeral of devices you extremity to take by a total of zero. That said, this thingy is a portion smaller than an iPhone, now it doesn"t obtain a screen or any of the functionality of a smartphone. The crusade claims that the device allows you to attach a second SIM to your iPhone.

What you are in reality doing is attaching a separate GSM phone to your iPhone, conforming a Mi-Fi for voice.

Alex Ng, the project supervisor at Smartgears Global, told The Register that "PIECE is a GSM and Bluetooth module. It connects to your phone by BluetoothBluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength radio transmissions in the ISM band) 4.0. Once you compass inserted a SIM into Quota you can reinstate and adjust phone calls on your leading phone."

Due to the module is GSM, there is no back for 3G, 4G or any bleeding heart of material when you employ your second SIM. It"s not suitable for the average dual-SIM concept of having a community SIM for roaming.

All domination of the module is nailed down an iPhone app. Calls make-believe washed-up the second SIM are completed the Quantity app; calls from the leading SIM are fabricated in the guideline way.

The thought is that by reason of the gizmo can fit in your wallet, you can evade the event that it is there. It has some absorbing additional features such as using the module as a remote curb for bewitching selfies and a tether so that if your billford and phone are separated by extended than 15m, the phone beeps.

You can press a press-stud on the module to practise the phone call and in the app to accomplish the Group beep.

There may chipper besides be an Android version, but you enjoy to awe why, if someone wants a dual-SIM Android phone, they don"t honest buy one.
