General Mobile DSTL1 powered by Android Cupcake, on sale in U.S. and Turkey in June
General Mobile just contacted us and has informed us that it plans on offering its dual-SIM Android powered DSTL1 smartphone for sale in the U.S. and Turkey at the end of June.
The DSTL1 will be running the Android 1.5 (Cupcake) OS and features a 624MHz CPU, dual-SIM capability, a 5 megapixel camera with flash (made by Sony), and one of Sharp’s resistive touchscreen displays (WQVGA resolution, probably 400×240 pixels). An FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0, and WiFi are also on board, and it provides 4GB of storage capacity thanks to an included microSD card (16GB cards supported). A leather case, an extra battery, and a desktop charger are also said to be included.
The tri-band GSM/EDGE phone is currently configured for 900/1800/1900MHz support, but the company plans on having a version that supports the U.S. 850MHz band at some point as well (though perhaps not at initial launch).
The phone is expected to sell for somewhere in the US$550 to $750 range, depending on the market and taxes and such. No carrier deals have been announced yet, but we were told that Russia and Germany are the next two markets planned after the Turkey and the U.S.
While we’re waiting for more, though, you can see the device in a live video after the jump or click over to our prior story, which features a photo gallery of the DSTL1.
