General Mobile DSTL1 Android phone captured on video

Android Authority has got their hands on the General Mobile DSTL1 and posted an unboxing video. This Android phone is unlike any other because it supports two sim cards and uses a stylus. The DSTL1 also features a Marvell CPU, a first for Android.

The highlights of the DSTL1 specs:

  • Technology:  Double SIM, Androidâ„¢ 1.5 Cupcake
  • Platform:  Marvellâ„¢ PXA 310 (624MHz)+NXP 5209
  • Memory:  4GB memory (16GB T-flash card support), 256MB flash + 128MB SDRAM
  • Screen:  3.0″ SHARP® Brand Touchscreen Display/ 240 x 400 pixels
  • WiFi:  802.11 b/g
  • Bluetooth:  BT 2.0 + A2DP
  • FM radio
  • Dimensions:  112 x 54 x 16mm
  • Camera:  5MP Auto Focus with Flash SONY® Brand Camera Sensor
  • Battery:  1200 mAh

I’m a little worried about the 128 MB of memory, which is the lowest yet for an Android phone. The Marvell CPU is clocked at 624 MHz (which sounds impressive), but we have no idea how it stacks up with the Qualcomm chipsets we are used to seeing on Android.

Watch the video as Michael Oryl walks us through this unique device.

    how’d this one sneak under the radar for so long?

    I’m gonna pass though. Resistive screen, low memory and the thickness of that thing are deal breakers. Reminds me too much of an HTC Diamond.

  • Daniel

    It looks nice but after the years,lots of Windows Mobile devices and my G1I have learned that I better use what I have until it does not work.
    This is just another phone and like Carl daid…it reminds of an HTC Diamond.

  • Tydiz

    He failed to press the middle white dot during calibration? How does that even make sense?

  • Hegedus Bandi

    it boots up really fast. and only 128mbs….weird

  • Zappy

    That thick there should be a hardware keyboard in there. Small screen and resistive!? No 3,5mm jack. The two batteries are nice though.

    Anyone know how the cpu stacks up to the current crappy cpus?

    I guess it could be nice if its cheap as hell…

  • Sergio

    This seems like it’s geared way more towards a business user. 2 SIMs, 2 batteries, resistive touch screen, extra battery charger. Too bad android 1.5 doesn’t have exchange & it’s lacking a physical keyboard

  • Teddy

    Too cluncky….the mytouch is the best and sleekest design out when comparing to the iphone. I am a g1 and mytouch user, and would still rate the iphone over my mytouch….but only bc the multi touch capability isnt out yet….2.0 please sign the patent and make more money lol
