Two identical digits

 
There are at least 2 identical digits in the result of a(n) * a(n+1). This is the lexicographically earliest sequence of distinct positive terms with this property (I hope).

S = 1,11,2,22,3,33,10,20,5,23,7,16,9,13,17,15,35,19,6,24,12,21,25,4,28,8,...

Examples
 1 * 11 =  11
11 *  2 =  22
 2 * 22 =  44
22 *  3 =  66
 3 * 33 =  99
33 * 10 = 330
10 * 20 = 200
20 *  5 = 100
 5 * 23 = 115
 7 * 16 = 112
Etc.

> Giorgos Kalogeropoulos was quick to compute S; here are the first 100 terms:
S = 1, 11, 2, 22, 3, 33, 10, 20, 5, 23, 7, 16, 9, 13, 17, 15, 35, 19, 6, 24, 12, 21, 25, 4, 28, 8, 14, 18, 29, 31, 32, 34, 26, 38, 30, 36, 37, 27, 40, 45, 39, 41, 42, 44, 46, 47, 43, 52, 50, 48, 49, 51, 59, 56, 55, 57, 58, 54, 53, 61, 60, 65, 62, 67, 63, 68, 66, 64, 69, 71, 72, 70, 73, 75, 74, 78, 77, 76, 79, 81, 82, 80, 83, 85, 89, 84, 86, 90, 92, 87, 88, 91, 94, 97, 100, 93, 95, 101, 96, 102, ...

How about T: Every digit has a twin (first 100 terms hereunder and graph of the first 1000 terms):
T = 1, 11, 2, 22, 3, 33, 34, 66, 17, 101, 10, 110, 20, 55, 21, 132, 9, 202, 5, 220, 15, 77, 13, 88, 24, 176, 12, 99, 19, 121, 28, 143, 7, 165, 27, 44, 25, 209, 16, 187, 6, 198, 14, 242, 23, 303, 4, 275, 8, 264, 32, 3159, 154, 18, 253, 29, 231, 26, 297, 364, 286, 31, 319, 314, 415, 294, 429, 238, 572, 182, 561, 200, 583, 190, 739, 155, 658, 246, 407, 276, 363, 277, 578, 279, 390, 295, 374, 273, 385, 288, 351, 308, 338, 461, 333, 341, 339, 298, 396, 278,  ...

This sequence is finite: the largest product of 2 successive terms is 99887766554433221100. So, the divisors of this products (namely the terms of this sequence) are finite. If we want another variation with infinite terms (sequence U hereunder), we should ask that "We have at least 2 digits of every digit in a(n) * a(n+1)". The first 100 terms of U are:
U = 1, 11, 2, 22, 3, 33, 34, 66, 17, 101, 10, 110, 20, 55, 21, 37, 6, 74, 9, 111, 4, 222, 50, 44, 25, 88, 13, 77, 15, 202, 5, 220, 30, 303, 7, 143, 8, 264, 16, 132, 32, 198, 14, 242, 23, 99, 12, 176, 19, 121, 28, 275, 24, 187, 18, 154, 26, 231, 29, 253, 35, 165, 27, 286, 31, 319, 38, 307, 76, 579, 57, 193, 89, 199, 56, 377, 112, 387, 178, 471, 358, 59, 274, 73, 137, 87, 153, 174, 209, 42, 481, 63, 497, 126, 344, 71, 141, 93, 282, 142,  ...

Jean-Marc Falcoz proposed another variation leading to a finite sequence (X, first 113 terms below):

"Lexicographically earliest sequence of distinct positive terms such that a(n)*a(n+1) contains exactly 1 digit 1 (if 1 is present), 2 digits 2 (if 2 is present), 3 digits 3 (if 3 is present)... 9 digits 9 (if 9 is present)." The sequence is finite as the largest possible product a(n)*a(n+1) is 999999999888888887777777666666555554444333221.
