Alcatel OT-209

The economy faces glaring uncertainties going into the new year and shoppers are being exceptionally careful on where they spend their money. This has lead to the return of the sub £20 mobile phones.

As smart phoneS took off around 4 years ago, so did the average price of mobile phones. However simpler models have now made a comeback. Leading the pack are Samsung, LG and Alcatel.

The Alcatel OT-209 is one such example. It is a simple phone that does its job, plus it has FM radio for music on the go. With bigger buttons, Alcatel seems to have stuck to the idea of making a simple phone, that is easy to use.

Alcatel Alcatel OT 980

Feeling left out of the Smartphone segment due to their unusually high prices? The good news is that there are companies like Alcatel who make things for the common man and that they are on their job. Alcatel will make the OT-980 available to customers via Carphone Warehouse, priced at just £99.95 on PayG contract.

Alcatel has for long championed the cause of price-worthy handsets and provided us with cheap and useful phones.

Alcatel phones are no lesser to counterparts from its competitors when it comes to functionality. The company looks forward to providing suave mobile phones which do not leave a big hole in your pocket. The handsets should however be able to help you in social networking, texting, MMS, and Image capture.

Come October, Alcatel will launch its first Android powered Smartphone in the UK christened as Alcatel OT-980.

The QWERTY handset, powered by Android 2.1 will have a 2.8-inch TouchScreen display, a 2 Megapixel camera, an MP£ player, and a Multi IM client. Wi-Fi, HSPA, and E-Compass are the options to connect to the web using the OT-980.

The uber stylish 3G mobile phone will enable users to access Social networking platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Bebo. Apps for shopping, music, and games will jazz up the phone too.

Alcatel continues to spawn interesting phones

At the recently concluded Mobile World Congress, we saw a wide array of handsets from world-renowned manufacturers and Alcatel succeeded to carve a niche for itself with a nice set of Alcatel Smartphones. As per TCT Mobile, Alcaltel tasted success especially with the Alcatel One Touch Tribe and the One Touch Mini models, last year.

The USP of Alcatel has been the price-quality quotient, unique designs and user-friendliness. While Every other manufacturer aims for the same qualities, why is Alcatel any different?

Alcatel OT-710 Smartphone
Lets take a look at the new Alcatel Touch Experience, or Alcatel OT-710. It is a new Smartphone from Alcatel that focuses on fun and user experience. OT-710 is surely not a high-end handset but it surely is a cheap alternative to a Smartphone. And that is the kind of market that Alcatel wants to tap. More than anything else, the Alcatel OT-710 is going to create flutters for its price-quality quotient.

Alcatel OT-880 Smartphone

The Alcatel OT-880 goes an extra mile and offers the best of both worlds by providing a complete QWERTY keypad along with a touch screen experience. And this should help it stand tall in the basic level customer’s eye who has never hit such a jackpot. One can be socially connected and access emails with the Alcatel OT-880 Smartphone.

What’s in a name?

Alcatel names the handsets in a manner which is tough to remember them. But who cares as long as customers get what they want at a throw-away price? The mission is all accomplished for Alcatel as long as the customers are happy with what they get.
