Budget Android twisted together with a QWERTY keyboard

We have to give Alcatel kudos for coming out with an Android handset in a sector of the market which is already feeling quite full and for doing something a bit different. But we aren't sure the chunky physical design really floats our boat and despite really budget price point, the functionality doesn't quite marry up.



There are a lot of people who won't mind the lack of functionality when they see the price point and realise the depth of apps they can get. read more →

  • Lots of third party apps pre-installed
  • Mini qwerty keyboard is nicely made
