The General Mobile DSTL1 is a good looking Android handset that was spotted in late January and then made an appearance at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company behind the phone a Chinese ODM named Yuhua and they’ve got a new phone that is ready – right now – for an OEM to pick up and start making.


It’s called the Xphone-SDK and many of the elements, like the 3-inch Sharp touchscreen and tri-band GPRS/EDGE, are shared with the DSTL1. We’re hoping that a manufcaturer picks this up and works with a carrier to bring it live ASAP. It’s not amazing  as you can see by the specs below, but it’s capable and you can never have too many Androids. Highlights include a 3MP camera (no flash), Bluetooth, WiFi and of course… ANDROID!
