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! ;)
