By Anuj Bhatia

    Alcatel is slowly but steadily coming back from the darkness. The mobile handset manufacturer has launched two Android Jelly Bean powered devices in India recently - Alcatel OT 4010E and OT 4005D - currently available on Flipkart.

    From the first look both smartphones are low cost Jelly Bean smartphones featuring dual SIM capability, hence appear to be attractive and insync with the competition in the tech grounds of the Indian market.

    Alcatel OT 4010E, 4005D: Cheapest Jelly Bean Handsets at Rs 5000

    Lets take a look at the other features:

    Alcatel OT 4010E

    The Alcatel OT 4010E is an Android Jelly Bean powered device with a large 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1GHz processor , 256MB of RAM , a 2-mega pixel rear camera and no front facing camera included, 1.4GB of internal memory ( expandable via micro SD card), 1000mAh battery, Wi-Fi, dual SIM ,3G and Bluetooth connectivity. The fitted battery is rather poor; it won't last for a longer duration. Even the embedded RAM signals sluggishness and cumbersome experience. The device is priced at around Rs.4999.

    Alcatel OT 4005D

    The Alcatel OT 4005D is again a device with Jelly Bean inside. It has a 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2-mega pixel camera, 1.4GB of internal memory (expandable via micro SD card), 1400mAh battery, 4GB of ROM, Wi-Fi, 3G, A-GPS and Bluetooth connectivity. The handset can be yours for Rs.4499.

    Surprisingly, the lower priced model has all the fancy specifications over the expensive model. It could simply be an error or something else. However, the company hasn't made these handsets official, as of now.

    Under Rs. 5,000, it is a tedious task to get an Android Jelly Bean handset. There are many handset models that feature Android v2.3, but it for the first time consumers will get Jelly Bean experience, at such a low price.


    Android Gingerbread (v2.3) is the most commonly used version found in lower-end Android handsets. The reason for the sudden upsurge in the Android OS in the developing countries is primarily because of Gingerbread (v2.3).

    As per an unofficial report dated, December 2012, Gingerbread commands a lion share of 50 per cent among the android devices. Whereas, Ice Cream sandwich (v4.0), has 27 per cent share. Currently, Jelly Bean (v4.1) has 5.9 per cent usage. But, with the launch of new Alcatel OT 4010E and OT 4005D handsets, it can be estimated that they will contribute to the penetration of Google's latest mobile operating system a lot more than it was getting right now.
