Samsung has unveiled the new C5212 mobile phone. The principle feature for the new handset is its dual-SIM facility.
The dual-SIM option, which is the focus of other manufacturer's new phone releases, such as the KS660 from LG, can be very useful for those who wish to use two services without the need to carry two phones at the same time. For example, you could have one SIM for business use and another for private calls. Each SIM could feature wholly different numbers and, of course, different bills.
Other features for this candybar design include a screen packing 176x220 pixels whilst packing in 262K colours. Entertainment includes FM radio plus an MP3 player. A 1.3-megapixel camera is also included along with Bluetooth 2.1 and a microSD slot for memory upgrades up to 8GB.
The new phone has already been released in Russia but the handset is also slated for release throughout Europe - a UK release date and price has yet to be announced. The price is rated at €152 euros, which is good value for a dual-SIM design.
