    The DSTL1 looks really sleek, I'm excited to see the first videos of it in action when it is shown off at the Mobile World Conference. Anyone else see that Kevin Spacey is giving a keynote, strikes me as a little odd, but then again, I don't know Kevin Spacey :).

    Dual means you can run on more than one sim or network for that matter... and your sim see below....

    [SIZE=-2] [/SIZE] SIM (Card) - Subscriber Identity Module
    A small electronic card inserted into mobile of cell phones that provides a unique ID to a phone for example the persons billing details and phone network permissions.
    It also provides encryption to the phone calls being made so calls can't easily be listened to.

    Well since it is dual sim or at this point it is I would have to say very likely... besides if it isn't (unlikely) you can always unlock it...

    Hmmm, another question has arisen... When it says TFT, does that automatically translate into "resistive" or could it possibly be capacitive? My brother has an HTC Touch Pro, and I really don't like using it because of the resistive touchscreen.

    Well TFT literally means "Thin Film Transistor" but I can't seem to find any definite answers on if it will have a capacitive screen or not...

    hmm... hopefully it will, resistive is quite cumbersome.

    So I recently got a message about the DTL1 by General Mobile being "in-stock".


    Art of Hitech Claims to have the phone available by 08/24/2009

    I hope its a good one because Im tempted to get it. Anyone have any opinions on this one?
