Alcatel’s debut phone will carry a price tag of around $250, or even less, which sounds like a good starting point and will put it in direct competition with low-end Android devices, some of which Alcatel itself is making.
Of course at that price, the One Touch View doesn’t impress with specs. It features a 4.0-inch WVGA screen, a Snapdragon S1 chip, the Qualcomm MSM7227А, which is the same one we’ve seen on devices like the Android-based Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. The processor is single-core and clocked at 1GHz and there is 512MB of RAM.
There are two cameras, a 5-megapixel auto-focus rear one and a front snapper. The battery is 1,500mAh and Internal storage is 4GB, and the phone connects to 3G networks and Wi-Fi.
Let’s not forget that Nokia is also said to be readying a budget model, allegedly the Lumia 510 that might come with an even lower price of $150. Seems like Windows Phone is starting to get more competitive at the low end, don’t you think?
