We had already showed you a first look on General Mobile's Android Device, the DSTL1. We're excited for General Mobile's offerings for three reasons: first, they look like they know how to design a phone. Second, the dual-sim capabilities is a fairly intriguing (yet niched) feature. And third, we want more Android devices already! Though the DSTL1 looks like a high end device, it kind of teeters back and forth between luxury and basic features. For example, the camera packs a punch. We're talking about 5 megapixels, autofocus, LED flash made by Sharp. There's also supposed to be video conferencing support as well. On the other hand, this is a EDGE only device that uses a resistive touchscreen. Yeah, color us confused. Luckily, General Mobile will be putting out more Android Devices in the future. Including the DSTL1, General Mobile has three Android Devices in development. It looks like the other 2 devices will have 3G connectivity, one of the devices will have a QWERTY keyboard and another a slim touchscreen. No details on availability yet. In any case, there's a ton of pictures of the DSTL1 after the break! Thanks for the tip Meraj! [photos via phonereport] The front face of the DSTL1 houses a WQVGA resistive touchscreen. It also has 2 send call and 2 end call buttons so you can control your different SIM cards with little hassle. You can see the edges and lines of the phone were carefully designed. It's definitely a sharp looking device that gives off a "high luxury" feel. Again, the lines are worth mentioning. This is pretty good design from a small unknown company. Here's a close up shot of the bottom of the phone. Has a resemblance to the AT&T Fuze, no? And there's the back of the phone with the 5.0 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash! I think aside from the styling, the camera is the DSTL1's best feature.
