Visual Fan, a Brasov-based company with 3 million euros in annual turnover, which manufactures and sells electronic products under its own brand Allview, will invest around 200,000 euros this year in research and development of new products, among which a dual-sim mobile phone compatible with 3G and Wi-Fi technologies.
"We are working on a phone with navigation, 3G, WiFi, PushMail, Office, and a suite of friendly applications that allow access to networking platforms," Lucian Peticila, general manager of Visual Fan, told ZF, without providing details on the estimated date of the launch.

The company, which was launched on the market in 2002, when it sold television sets and DVD players under the Allview brand, has found a niche on the crowded mobile phones market, by speculating a particularity of Romanian consumption as far as telecom services are concerned: phones that can be used with two sim cards at the same time, even from different operators.
