That's kind of a solution, except it looks complicated and seems to

It's possible that you're right, but I'm not so sure.  Influential US 
websites like The Travel Insider recommend using a local SIM when 
traveling abroad, so there may be a significant audience for such SIMs, 
and who wouldn't rather use a second SIM with their regular phone?

But a space for a second SIM card, like all design goals, should 
certainly be weighed against other priorities, and if there is just a 
niche market for it, then perhaps it doesn't make sense for the 
mass-market Neo.
