General Mobile's Dual-Sim Handset to Debut at MWC

Boy how we envy those who get to go to Barcelona next month.  Handset maker General Mobile will be in attendance with their DSLT-1 phone, a dual-sim Android handset.  The fine folks at AndroidAuthority have gotten word directly from the handset maker that they’ll be bringing the phone along for the trip.  What you see below is only a rendering of the handset, with the obvious “subject to change” tag coming along for the ride.

Looking through the specs, it seems to be standard fare for today’s phones.  What’s more interesting however, is the shiny, polished package it comes in.  We don’t think we’re alone when we thought HTC’s first Android handset would look more like this.  The DSLT-1 looks a lot like an HTC Touch Diamond on the front while the back looks a little Nokia-ish.

  • Dual-SIM cards with dual-Standby mode
  • 624MHz Marvell PXA 310 processor
  • Tri-band GSM/EDGE support (900/1800/1900MHz)
  • 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display, 260k colors
  • 802.11b/g WiFi support
  • Bluetooth
  • 135g (4.75oz), 112 x 54 x 16mm (4.4 x 2.1 x .6 inches)
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera with flash (made by Sharp)

Is anyone else worried about that screen resolution?  Kogan just had to scrap the Agora over a 320×240 screen.  This isn’t much different.

We’re anxious to see what the finished product ends up looking like.  Although we’re not going to MWC, we’ll be following closely.  Look for updates as soon as they hit our inbox!
