Mobile has just released its DSTL1 Android smartphone with immediate
availability, which is quite unique for an Android smartphone for two reasons:
It's only featuring 2.5G technology, lacking UMTS and HSPA, as well as it's the
first dual-SIM Android smartphone! According to the specs, the DSTL1 is powered
by a Marvell PXA 310/NXP 5209 combo at 624 MHz and is said to run on Android 1.5
aka Donut. The phone supports - as mentioned - triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at
900/1800/1900 MHz only as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and WiFi b/g. While GPS
isn't on board, the specs mention an FM radio! The DSTL1 is said to feature a 5
megapixel Sony-branded autofocus camera as well as a 3" Sharp-branded WQVGA 240
x 400 touchscreen.
The DSTL1 comes with Memory 4 GB memory, which can be expanded up to 16 GB, as
well as 256 MB ROM and 128MB SDRAM. At a size of 112 x 54 x 16 mm the device
weights 135 g.
The DSTL1 is now available from Amazon U.S. and Art of Hitech for US$ 499!
