What's better than one SIM card? Two SIMs, of course! The problem is that most phones won't accept a second SIM, no matter how much of a hammer enthusiast you are. If you're in the market for a modern, dual-network wielding mobile, MobiCity is currently accepting pre-orders for Sony's Xperia M2.


The Nexus 4 sold out in 22-minutes when it went live on the Google Play store, and ever since then, you have been asking me where and when it will come back. The good news is that the 8GB version of the Nexus 4 is now available from MobiCity. Oh yeah, it's on sale with a $100 mark-up.


We're seeing more and more high-end smartphones enter the market, and keeping up with all of them is nothing short of overwhelming. How will you decide which one will be your next handset? Here’s how popular beasts like the Galaxy S III stack up against upcoming options like the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920.


On Friday, the only local importer offering the Galaxy S III was Mobicity -- and then, only if you wanted the 16GB variant. Kogan's entered the fray as well, and both vendors have the 16, 32 and 64GB models on pre-order.


At yesterday's Galaxy Note launch, I queried Samsung's telecommunications VP Tyler McGee about the differences between the Note launched yesterday and the models you've been able to buy for months from direct importers. His answer wasn't terribly satisfactory, relying largely on stating that web-based phone sales might not be accurate. Over at Lifehacker, Gus looks into whether or not you can trust direct market phones, and what Aussie law has to say on the matter.
