Google brings real-time traffic information to Indian roads

1

Driving on Indian roads is not unlike navigating an obstacle course, with motorists on two-wheelers and four-wheelers trying to dodge city buses (which don't follow the lane system), autos and errant pedestrians. And that's not even accounting for the wildlife that manages to find its way onto the roads in the country. Google is now trying to make sense of the chaos by bringing real-time traffic information for twelve cities.

The ASUS ZenFone 2 has two SIM card slots — here's how to use them

19
ZenFone 2

Setting up both SIM cards on your ZenFone 2 is easy, and it doesn't require any special software.

One of the coolest features of the new ASUS ZenFone 2 is that it's one of the first "mainstream" devices to come with dual SIM card slots. Hold on — that doesn't mean you're going to be doubling down on network speeds or anything, as we explained here, but it does bring two physical phone lines into one device.

This isn't anything new, of course. Dual-SIM phones have been around a long time, and plenty of people use them outside of North America for various reasons. In some places, dual-SIM phones are the norm to prevent roaming fees or to ensure you have coverage everywhere you will be going. But in North America, where carriers have traditionally dictated the market (and they would never want you to be able to use a different network's SIM in their phone easily), it's just something we rarely see.

That's why we want to take a few minutes and show how easy it is to use two SIM cards on the ASUS ZenFone 2.
