Alcatel adds another smartphone in their OT family. Alcatel highlights its dual-sim capability (it is Alcatel’s second dual-sim capable phone since Blaze 918N) Android Gingerbread platform which is run by a 650 MHz MediaTek MT6573 CPU.

With its dual-sim capability, it seduces people to stick with them as more and more people now searches for dual-sim phones.

Its look is good looking with a nice Home-button that resembles HTC devices, and the back looks like a rubberized cover which is perfect for handling.

Its display is comfortable with 3.5 inch TFT 262k colour display that supports 480 x 320 pixel resolution. Also, it includes a front and rear camera which is perfect for immediate captures and video calls. G-Sensor is also included in One Touch OT 985 N. It also has a Handsfree technology. Moreover, it has an impressive memory capacity. It got a 256MB RAM paired with a 512MBROM.Its storage memory can be expanded to 32GB (microSD, microSDHC and TransFlash).

 

It just doesn’t have decent hardware specifications but also a good software system with its Android capabilities. It allows easy access for users to carious networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. It also has a built-in RSS feed which enables users to receive frequent updates from various sites.

With its Android OS, paired with a decent hardware specifications and a wide range of software apps, it is good enough with a price of PHP7,999. What more can you ask? But my main doubt is will Alcatel have the guts to beat big names such as Samsung and Apple? Nokia is losing their grip now. Will Alcatel be next or will they replace Nokia’s position?
