Little-known Plum Mobile appeared at CTIA with the four dual-SIM Android sets pictured above and the Might, a Galaxy Note twin we had a peek at a little earlier today. From the top left we have the Debut, which is a 7-inch WVGA tablet (that can be used as a phone) with Android 2.2 powered by an 800MHz CPU, a 5-megapixel camera and a 4,250mAh battery. Pricing for the Plum Debut is somewhere in the neighborhood of $180. The $90 Plum Capacity runs Android 2.2 with a 650MHz CPU, it also offers a 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, a 3.5-inch HVGA display and comes in "several" color options. The Wicked 3G is a quadband GSM dualband 3G set with a 3-megapixel camera around back, personal hotspot and a 2.8-inch resistive display. Rounding out the set is the Android 2.3 Plum Orbit -- this $50 dollar set lacks 3G but does have a quadband GSM radio, a 2-megapixel camera and a 3.2-inch display.

All of Plum Mobile's sets are fairly low cost but the materials and build quality were decent. The Wicked 3G -- aside from having the best name of the group -- was somehow our favorite of the bunch. Sure it is pretty shiny plastic, but the shape was just great to hang onto which is something of a rarity in our world of giant slabs. We doubt that we'll be seeing these phones in any brick and mortar stores on these shores, so we thought we'd treat you to some glossies of them all. Check the gallery just below.
