Philips have launched the W9588 with dual 3.5-inch screens and a MediaTek quad-core processor, albeit with (quite) a hefty price tag!
Advertised as a smartphone for professionals, the Philips W9588 features a FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels on either screen, both of which have support for touch input. The device also boasts a metal body and an elegant design, sporting two of the favourite colours for this year – Black and Golden. Under the hood, the phone packs a rather austere 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 processor along with 1GB of RAM and just 4GB ROM, which clearly shows that Philips are banking on the dual screens to allure prospective buyers.
