Alcatel unveils One Touch Scribe series: 5-inch phones with a stylus for the masses
Alcatel has just dropped its well-timed CES bomb with a handful of new devices, but the most exciting ones for phone lovers are the three new phones in the Alcatel Scribe series: the Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD, Alcatel One Touch Scribe X and Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD-LTE.

All are 5-inch devices touching the border between a phone and tablet, all are based on Android 4.1.x and all have an optional capacitive stylus. And from there on, the differences begin.

First, the Alcatel One Touch (OT) Scribe HD, the device opening the series has a 720 x 1,280-pixel 5-inch screen, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek 6589 chip.

The phone is designed to be an alternative to the stylus-equipped Samsung Galaxy Note, but at a much cheaper price, somewhere around $400 off contract. The Alcatel One Touch Scribe release date is set for a much later time in the year, though, somewhere in Q3 2013.

The Alcatel OT Scribe HD will feature an 8-megapixel rear camera, a front shooter, 4 gigs of internal storage expandable via microSD cards, and a fairly large 2,500mAh battery. The device comes with a flip cover to protect that big screen.

Alcatel One Touch Scribe X is the top of the line model, with a 1080p display, a snappier 1.4GHz quad-core processor and a 12-megapixel rear camera.

Finally, the Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD-LTE will be a 4G LTE model similar to the previous one, but aimed at those markets with a developed 4G infrastructure.
