HTC Butterfly S dual-SIM edition appears: One Up!

It's time to have a peek at the HTC Butterfly S once again, this time seeing how this DROID DNA-sized smartphone works with all the features of the HTC One along with not just one, but two SIM cards at once. There's a bit of a "must have" feature out there for much of the world outside the USA, and that is the aforementioned ability to work with more than on SIM card at once, holding both of these micro-SIM-sized cards under the hood at once as well. This device is also appearing this week for the first time in black.
