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 â€œlate January 2010â€. For those of you who donâ€™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.Â Gripes that include its lack of 3G, screen resolution and touch interface. This time theyâ€™ll trade the resistive touch screen for its capacitive counterpart and swap resolutions from the odd WQVA to the pervasive HVGA.
