Here is a photo I took today of a typical display window in a mobile shop in Thimphu.
|Do (NOT) buy me!|
Here are the 3G specifications of these phones.
- Samsung Galaxy Music Duos: 3G at 900/2100
- Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos: 3G at 900/2100
- Samsung Galaxy S Duos: 3G at 900/2100
- Samsung Galaxy Grand: 3G 900/1900/2100
All the 3G smartphones in the above photo do not support 850. If you plan to use them to connect to the Internet, you are wasting your money. A similar situation exists in other shops in Thimphu. Shops are packed with 3G phones that will not work in Thimphu. You will need to search carefully and make sure that the phone you buy supports 3G at 850. They are not easy to find: the selection is relatively poor, and their prices are high.
