Cheap Alcatel One Touch 602 England Rugby to bring its touchscreen to O2 in August
In the UK, O2 is prepping yet another handset to throw into the cheap phone race. The Alcatel One Touch 602 England Rugby comes with a touchscreen, as well as (you guessed it!) a rugby theme centered around the England team.
The OT 602 Rugby’s touchscreen is incredibly small though at just 2.4 inches diagonally, and it has a resolution of 240×320. The phone is powered by a 102 (!) MHz processor, which isn’t a lot even for a featurephone in this day and age. It also has a 2 MP camera, 4 MB of internal memory expandable via microSD cards, microUSB charging, and an 850 mAh battery.
The OT 602 comes without 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity. You do however get one touch access to Facebook and Twitter, as well as a built-in IM client and RSS feed reader. The handset has a special cover and comes “packed with content dedicated to the England Rugby team”. So rugby fans in the UK will be thrilled about it, presumably. Whether or not anyone is going to buy a rugby-themed phone – that’s another story.
But we’ll find out soon enough. The Alcatel One Touch 602 England Rubgy will be available from O2 sometime in August, for a price that shouldn’t even dream of crossing the £50 mark on Pay as you go.
