Alcatel One Touch View comes with Windows Phone 7.8, dated OS traded for cheap price

The Alcatel One Touch View with Windows Phone 7.8 might seem like a thing of the past, but its price tag is expected to be a very affordable present-day affair that might just make you consider it. Announced first for Russia, the View is a neat phone without the excessively huge screens of today, and a refreshing selection of bright colors.

Alcatel is now teasing the upcoming One Touch View with the adventures of a certain Ricky who keeps track on his life via Windows Phone’s live tiles.

And when it comes to the actual devices, we’ve earlier heard about the following specs:

  • 4-inch, WVGA screen, 
  • 1GHz CPU, 
  • 5-megapixel camera

Now, if we only knew just how cheap it would and when will it come exactly, that would make decision-making so much easier.

This title should be change to WP 7.5, not WP7.8 You can tell from the start screen this phone is not running Windows Phone 7.8, but an older version of Windows Phone since there are only two tile sizes as oppose to three.

How can you say dated OS while wp 7.8isn't released yet. And it will have almost all features of Wp8.
