Design-wise, the Alcatel OT-980 borrows a lot from the Palm Pre, although the current design may be changed, since this is only a prototype – the final version of the handset should be unveiled at MWC 2010.
The OT-980 will be an affordable phone (its price should be lower than the one of HTC Tattoo), and that’s because its features are not exactly on the high-end side: QVGA resistive touchscreen display, Android 1.6, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, accelerometer, 3.5mm headset jack, 2MP camera, MicroSD card support, 600MHz processor and 192MB of RAM.
FrAndroid has some hands-on photos, as well as a video of the Alcatel OT-980:
Alcatel OT-980 should be launched before mid-2010 via Orange France, in several color versions. No word yet about the phone’s release in other markets.
