General Mobile to announce Dual-Sim touchscreen phone at MWC, supposedly running Android

Chew Tech: The ‘No Spill Spit Cup’

After a surprising lack of Android at CES, it looks like everyone’s pulling out their best Android garb for Mobile World Congress next month. Latest on the list of companies purportedly planning an Android announcement is General Mobile who, we’ll admit, we’ve never actually heard of. That’s okay, though – if they actually manage to get the DSTL1 onto the shelves (and if it’s actually running Android – more on that later), this gorgeous little piece might be enough to get their name out there.

The Specs we know:

  • Dual-SIM support
  • 3″ inch WQVGA (240×400) Touchscreen
  • 802.11b/g
  • 900/1800/1900Mhz band support
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth 2.0+edr
  • 5MP Auto Focus camera with LED flash

The only spec we’re still not quite sure about is whether or not it’s actually running Android. GSMArena and plenty of other sites claim it is, but we’re unable to find any mention of Google’s lovely little robot anywhere in the specs or available material. The closest bit we can find is that it’s running the Linux 2.6 Kernel; that’s the same kernel that Android uses, but it’s definitely not an absolute indication. If this thing really does have a little Droid in it, it’s probably in their best interest to make sure everyone knows it.

We’ll update you with pricing, availability (and, you know, whether it’s running Android or not) when the info comes our way.
