Alcatel OT-707 and OT-800 – cheap touchscreen and QWERTY phones
Alcatel mobile phones are usually entry-level, affordable ones, and the new OT-707 and OT-800 are no exceptions.
However, these two devices are definitely interesting: Alcatel OT-707 is the company’s first touchscreen handset, while Alcatel OT-800 is its first to have a full QWERTY keyboard.
The OT-707 is quite small and thin (95 x 53 x 13 mm), coming with a rounded case that brings in mind Motorola’s A3100 Surf.
Feature-wise, it doesn’t have too much to offer, but it looks nice and it seems to be a good choice for those who want a really cheap touchscreen phone.
The specs of OT-707 include:
- 2.3 inch TFT touchscreen display with 240 x 320 pixels and 262K colors
- Dual band GSM/GPRS connectivity (900/1800 MHz)
- Bluetooth with A2DP
- Music player
- FM radio
- 1.3 MP camera
- 10MB of internal memory
- MicroSD card support, up to 2GB
- Talk-time: up to 8 hours
- Stand-by time: up to 350 hours
The retail price of Alcatel OT-707 is said to be below 100 Euros ($126), but details about its availability are currently missing.
Alcatel OT-800 comes, as I already said, with a full QWERTY keyboard.
Its features include:
- Tri band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (900/1800/1900 MHz)
- 320 x 240 pixels display with 262K colors
- Opera Mini
- FM radio with RDS
- 2MP camera
- 111 x 58 x 14 mm
No word yet about when the OT-800 will be launched, but its retail price should be of around 95 Euros ($120).
