Alcatel's Android powered Blaze Duo OT-918 by March

Alcatel is a name which is rarely heard nowadays. One of the pioneers in Mobile handset manufacturing, Alcatel gradually descended in ranks soon with the advent of great new handsets integrated with the latest technologies, from various manufacturers.

Alcatel is slowly trying to get back on its feet, and is coming up with a few new handsets which are trendy as well as feature rich. We can’t expect Alcatel to reclaim its throne quickly, but with its new handsets sporting unique features, Alcatel has been definitely getting a lot of attention lately.

Alcatel is starting with a slow entry into the Android powered handset sector, with an all new Alcatel Blaze Duo OT-918 handset. Alcatel Blaze Duo OT-918 is Alcatel’s first Android handset, featuring Dual SIM support. The handset is not that slim, but it is pretty stylish.

Alcatel Blaze Duo OT-918 is basically a smartphone, but it is no high end one. However, taking into account Alcatel’s reputation for reasonably and affordably pricing their handsets, the Blaze Duo isn’t going to be any different.

Supporting dual SIM support as well as dual SIM standby, Alcatel Blaze Duo OT-918 also features 3G, WiFi and high speed v3.0 Bluetooth connectivity options. The Blaze Duo handset comes in two versions namely the OT-918N and OT-918D, differing in the 3G connectivity frequencies.

The Alcatel Blaze Duo Android handset will be priced under Rs 10,000/- in India as per reports. The Blaze Duo will be out by March.
