I've seen a lot of underpowered, not-worth the asking price Alcatel handsets lately...simple, if your product offer less for more, it will not sell, I'd take China phones anyday...

Alcatel haven't made smartphones already. The have sold smartphones division to chinese TCL Corp., which are making phones under the Alcatel brand – they pay licention fees to Alcatel-Lucent only for their brand using.

Maybe you could give an introduction to who Alcatel-Lucent is and what they do. This seems like a report on some obscure, random drop of a company among millions.

Right there in the beginning of the third paragraph: "Alcatel-Lucent makes telecom, internet and wireless switchgear." ...and then later, "The internet-routing business rose 26% and brought in over €574 million and the wireless segment raked in over €913 million, yet the company is posting billion-Euro losses each quarter."

A company that hasn't recovered since the bubble burst over a decade ago. Its hard to imagine why they aren't profitable considering how much of a backbone they are to the wireless industry.
