Sporty Alcatel OT-I650 comes with a G-sensor and an affordable price tag
We don’t hear much about Alcatel mobile phones, but the latest handset to come out under this brand surely deserves a bit of our attention.
Called Alcatel OT-I650, the new phone is an entry-level one that comes with a G-sensor (accelerometer). This apparently allows users to switch between applications – like music player, games, alarm – just by shaking the phone. So the handset has some sort of Shake Control function, similar to lots of Sony Ericsson phones.
Alcatel OT-I650 is a candybar manufactured by TCL Communication Technology, a Chinese company that produces Alcatel cell phones instead of the French-based Alcatel, which is now part of the Alcatel-Lucent joint venture.
The OT-I650 is a sporty device, not only by design, but also because it offers several sport applications, like a pedometer that should help you when jogging.
Other specs of the new Alcatel phone include:
1.3 Mp camera
Talk time: up to 12 hours
Stand-by time: up to 30 days (!)
Alcatel OT-I650 will first be available in Russia, in two colors (black and orange) for the price of 3,190 Russian rubles. That’s about $120, so the phone is quite cheap.
