LG is set to release a triple-SIM phone, the LG A290, in Russia. The phone features support for not one, or two, but three SIM cards. This is a great feature as people can now let carriers, choose you. Well, not quite, but you can throw three SIM cards into the phone and switch between them, depending on what benefits you from the carrier.

The LG A290 sports a 2.2-inch display with a resolution of just 176x220, a 1.3-megapixel camera with flashlight, and a 1500 mAh battery. It also fits into a fairly small phone that measures in at just 113.5 x 51 x 12.95mm. It's currently unknown if all three SIM cards can be active at the same time, or not.

The A290 should arrive in Russia by late-February for about €75.

What do you think of this triple-SIM business? I really think we need more of this in high-end smartphones, where we can choose between carriers, based on their rates, special times, etc. But unfortunately, it's only in Russia, carrier chooses you.
