General Mobile Has Next DUAL-SIM Handset Readied for Jan 2010 Launch?

The folks at the AndroidSpin.com forums been tipped to some exclusive information about a new General Mobile Android device to be released in “late January 2010”. For those of you who don’t remember, early this year, General Mobile presented its Dual-sim DSLT1 that grabbed attention for its striking resemblance to the HTC Touch Diamond.

While advancing the OS from Donut to Eclair and keeping their Dual-SIMfeature, the new rumored handset is promising to address most of the DSTL1 gripes.  Gripes that include its lack of 3G, screen resolution and touch interface. This time they’ll trade the resistive touch screen for its capacitive counterpart and swap resolutions from the odd WQVA to the pervasive HVGA.

These are the rumored specs:


OS: Android 2.0
Kernel: 2.6.29 (and newer is supported by processor)
SIM: Dual SIM (as is customary for GM)
Cellular data link: WCDMA (3g)
Display Diagonal: 3.2″
Display Resolution: 480×320 pixels (3:2 aspect ratio) or 640×240 pixels (8:3 aspect ratio) [HVGA]
CPU Clock: 624Mhz
CPU Processor: PXA935
Scroll Wheel: supported (trackball)
Touch Interface: Capacitative
Camera: 5MP
Wi-Fi: b/g supported
