General Mobile’s 2nd Android Phone: The COSMOS

Well here’s another interesting beginning to the new year. A new Android handset by General Mobile titled the COSMOS.

Android Authority received some pictures and details of the new Android-powered handset. This is GM’s first phone with Android 2.0 and successor to their first Android handset the DSTL1. Check out some images below:

Reported specs include:

  • Powerful CPU (Marvell PXA935 (Tavor P65), HSDPA/WCDMA/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)
  • Android OS 2.0 Eclair
  • 5.0 MP AF camera (Same as the DSTL1)
  • 3.2” HVGA (320*480) full capacitive multi-touch screen and rich multimedia format supported
  • New 3D animated UIs
  • Built in GM android market application (Storeoid)
  • Internet access via EDGE/HSDPA (3.6Mbps DL)
  • Bluetooth2.0, WIFI 802.11 b/g
  • 256MB NAND, 128MB DDR, Micro SD up to 16GB
  • Tracking ball
  • GPS and digital Compass
  • FM Radio
  • 1500mAh Battery

Not bad specs but one specific interest I have is how Android 2.0 will run on the COSMOS as it only has 128 MB of RAM compared to the Motorola Droid’s 256 MB & the Nexus One’s 512 MB of RAM (Though the N1 does run 2.1). In regards to the looks I think it generally looks much better than the DSTL1, anyone else digging the etched designs on the front near the trackball and the back cover?

No details on pricing or release date yet but we’ll keep you posted! ;)

    I’m liking the look of this new year with Android. It looks like the company really thought up some nice improvements for this phone.

    The design of the phone is suhweeet!

    Too bad I’m on Verizon and have no plans of switching to T-mobile. No camera flash kinda sux too.

    a bit skimpy, not a ground breaker….i remember when android first came out, any, and i mean ANY information on a new phone was juicy. hell, if you had released the CLIQ in april, it would have sold >500K units by now. now, it’s meh. kindof like this phone. it seems i’m just paying attention to screensize, processor type/speed, keyboard, and RAM – everything else should be standard. even the N1 is kinda sorta yawn, although i totally want it.

    @9ooyan: I understand what you mean, though I might argue about the Nexus One. The thing that I was saying though is that last year was the year everyone was jumping board android. This year is going to be the year they push the hardware (or so I think). I like this phone because even though it has pretty standard specs for the most part, it is significantly improved from its predecessor (DSTL1).

    Don’t understand why people keep making phones with low MB I guess they want u to use up its space so people will buy the next big things they come out with

  • giorgioM

    Improved specs? So, what about the dual sim function?

  • Sophie

    @giorgioM: Yeah, I wasn’t sure about that, maybe it too early to post what I said without knowing a key piece of information like that.

  • G8D

    It looks awesome.
    As to how it will perform? Who knows.
