Low-cost Samsung C5212 dual-SIM phone announced

Samsung C5212 dual-SIM phone

Unlike other major handset makers, Samsung is known to have his feet deep inside the dual-SIM market. Now we spotted yet another such device being announced by the Korean company, this time aimed at the low-to-mid range market.

At just 152 EUR (about $194), the dual-band (GSM 900/1800 MHz) Samsung C5212 is probably the cheapest dual-SIM handset ever made by a respectable handset manufacturer. It’s a candybar-shaped phone, which aside from sporting two SIM card slots, also comes with a 176×220 pixels screen, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity support, music player, FM radio, 1.3-megapixel camera, 64MB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot (memory cards of up to 8GB are supported)…

Want it? Well, Samsung thinks only certain parts of the world can have their latest dual-SIM baby. It’s Russia, some other East-European countries, as well as parts of Asia. Don’t live there – wait a bit ’till importers grab it. ;)

    there doesn't seem to be a way to select which sim you want to make a call out of on the fly. what you have to do is change the default sim, which requires the phone to reboot, taking a bit of time and is a hassle. this phone can accept calls from either sim on the fly, but not make calls. i get a business call or text from sim 2 but my phone is set to default on sim 1. if i call or text back immediately without switching the default sim to sim 2, it will mean the business guy will have my personally number to call and bug me. this is not cool at all if i don't want him to know my number. i am still looking for a dual sim phone that is truly dual sim. hopefully the nokia c2 will fix this problem.
