General Mobile will show off the DSTL1 handset next month. It’s super sexy, runs Android, and packs slots for two SIM cards, so it’ll act as a business and personal phone at once. T-Mobile G1, we hardly knew you!
There was always the danger that a commodity OS (albeit a powerful one) like Android might result in a load of identikit handset clones with little to distinguish themselves. That said, General Mobile does seem to be trying – the DSTL1 is a dual SIM phone, allowing you to plug to SIM cards into it for twice the fun, and comes with a decent 5 Megapixel camera (made by Sharp) and 3 inch (non-multi)touchscreen.
The phone has 4GB of onboard storage and supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, running on a 624MHz Marvell CPU.
General Mobile will be bringing the phone along for its first public outing to the Mobile World Congress, which opens in Barcelona on February 16th. We’ll be on hand to have a play with it and report back.
