Samsung's dual-SIM C5212 cellphone has been officially announced, at least it has in Russia.  The company's Russian arm will be the first - and, as far as we currently know, the only - to get the candybar, which can take two GSM 900/1800 SIMs and allows the user to flick between them.

Unlike more basic SIM adapters which promise the same functionality, the Samsung C5212 allows you to set default accounts for different numbers, so that you can automatically call work numbers from a work SIM while sending personal SMS messages from a personal SIM.  Even if you haven't set up specific rules, the C5212 will default to the SIM last used for that number.

You can also choose which SIM to use for data access.  In addition, there's an FM radio, 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and USB.  Internal storage is 64MB with a microSD card slot to augment that by up to 8GB.  The display runs at 176 x 220 pixels.

Russian buyers will be able to pick up the Samsung C5212 for 6990 rubles ($194).
