While Android powered smartphones were showing off in the market, Alcatel was developing its new mobile handset. Smartphones have become a priority now than a preference. Even though, such handsets cost much, people are willing to spend some money to obtain one. Alcatel on the other hand, seems to want to give people another alternative. Alcatel will soon launch a new moderate mobile handset which will be running in Google’s Android Operating System as well.
Alcatel’s new handset is christened as Alcatel One Touch OT-909s. Alcatel One Touch OT-909s doesn’t look impressively stylish. But its standard classy look is good though. Although, Alcatel One Touch OT-909s looks classy, it isn’t that much of a smartphone level performer. Its decent moderate performance owes it all to the 600 MHz processor, while the RAM capacity of Alcatel One Touch OT-909s is only 256 MB.
Let’s take a look at the phone’s specifications:
- 58 x 119 x 12.4 millimetres dimension
- Google’s Android v2.3 Gingerbread Operating System
- Qualcomm MSM 7227 Chipset
- 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM
- 2.8 inch TFT touchscreen display with a screen size of 240 x 320 pixels
- 3.5mm audio jack
- Supports GPRS and EDGE internet connectivity
- Supports 3G connectivity
- High speed 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity
- QWERTY keyboard
- V2.0 microUSB
- V3.0 Bluetooth connectivity
- microSD, microSDHC, TransFlash memory cards compatible
- Memory extensibility option
- RDS integrated FM Radio
- GPS module integrated with A-GPS
- 2 Megapixel LED Flash camera
- Accelerometer sensor
- 1300 mAh Li ion battery
Alcatel One Touch OT909s has a small RAM capacity of just 256 MB. So don’t expect the handset to be fast in everything. There is one thing at which this handset is superfast – File sharing. Alcatel One Touch OT909s reportedly features v3.0 Bluetooth, which makes it clear that files can be shared in the blink of an eye via Bluetooth.
The display is kind of a disappointment. Sure it’s a TFT touchscreen display, but making touch gestures in a 2.8 inch screen are a bit awkward. The display is also said to be a resistive touchscreen. The QWERTY keyboard needs some getting used to. But there isn’t more you can ask for in such Android powered reasonably priced handset. The camera specifications aren’t that impressive, but the 2 Megapixel camera in Alcatel One Touch OT-909s does a good job, offering decent image quality, although not much. The camera’s LED flash will come in handy though.
The price tag of Alcatel One Touch OT-909s is still not disclosed, so are a few of the specifications.
