Alcatel OT-915 with Android and QWERTY keyboard gets leaked on its way to the UK
Alcatel is still trying. Still trying to make a name for itself in the very competitive smartphone world. Last year during MWC, it showcased the OT-990, which only got a limited release a long time after. This year, the company’s back, apparently, and will have a new phone to show us at MWC once again. This time, it’s going to be the OT-915. This has a touchscreen, like the OT-990, but it also comes with a portrait QWERTY keyboard sitting nicely right underneath that screen, BlackBerry-style.
The touchscreen will be a 2.8-inch unit, and its resolution will be 240×320, clearly establishing the OT-915′s place in the ‘affordable smartphone’ category. It will be 11.9 mm thick, and will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread – a largely unskinned install, though it is a pity that Alcatel chose to ignore the newer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Alcatel OT-915 will have a 5 MP camera, Wi-Fi, and an FM radio too. It hasn’t got a firm price attached to it, or a release date for that matter, but ElectricPig claims it will debut in the UK sometime before the end of this year.
