General Mobile DSTL1 unboxing

This gadget is a bundle of contradictions. It’s got some useful accessories that make me wonder why all phones aren’t packaged with such foresight, but some incredibly weak spots that kill the buzz. For example, two 1200 mAh batteries and a wall charger allow you to juice one pack and drain the other simultaneously. There’s a MicroSD adaptor for easy transfers, and a magnetic case is included.

The phone itself has some great features as well, like an LED flash, dual SIM support, and a 5MP auto-focus cam. But wait, there’s more – and it’s not the kind of thing you yearn to hear. It’s only got 128 MB of RAM, which is 64 Megs *less* than the G1. Ouch. And a resistive screen? Meh, not exactly armed for the future. Still, it looks cool.
