General Mobile DSTL1 and its dual SIM cards get detailed

Manufacturer General Mobile has unleashed the DSTL1 Imaginary, an Android 2.0-powered phone with a little trick up its sleeve. You might remember the DSTL1 when we spotted it at Mobile World Congress in February, running  Specs of the phone are:

  • Android 2.0 Eclair (upgraded from 1.5)
  • A Marvell PXA 310 processor running at 624 MHz
  • 4gigs of storage, 256MB ROM/128MB RAM, storage card up to 16GB
  • GSM 900/1800/1900 GPRS/EDGE
  • 240x400 WQVGA touchscreen
  • WiFi b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.0 (with stereo support)
  • FM radio
  • Dimensions: 112x54x16mm
  • Weight: 135 grams
  • 5MP camera with autofocus and flash
  • 1200 mAh battery

And that little trick? Dual SIM cards. It's hardly the first phone to have such, but it's one of the first Android devices to sport the feature. Bad news is we don't expect to see these in the U.S. anytime soon, and there's no 3G on board. Otherwise, a solid middle-of-the-road Android 2.0 phone.
