Alcatel is one company you wouldn’t expect much from, but it has surprised us with a ton of exciting announcement at Mobile World Congress 2013, and the latest one is the Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD.
A 5-inch Android phone with 720p display and MediaTek processor, the Touch Scribe HD was first unveiled at CES, but now we get to see it again in Barcelona.
In a nutshell, it features a 5-inch IPS display, 1GB of RAM and the exciting MT6589 quad-core chip by MediaTek. Those things allow it to keep the price low.
There is an 8-megapixel rear camera, 4 gigs of expandable storage, and a 2,500mAh battery.
The Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD is gearing up for launch in Q3 2012 for $400 off contract.
The ONE TOUCH SCRIBE HD is the perfect SCRIBE for those that live online -- it's created for a super-fast online connection and the HD screen provides the perfect canvass for true-to-life videos and photos. The Wi-fi display let's budding film-makers not only create a movie but host a premier on their lounge-room big screen, all from the palm of their hand.
This version offers the seed boost of a quad-core - with the ONE TOUCH SCRIBE HD you won't skip a beat while connected.
The ONE TOUCH SCRIBE HD comes with the magnetic MagicFlip, for ultimate protection without sacrificing style.
Available colours: Flash Red, Flash Yellow, Pure White or Black.
