Alcatel’s OT-980 is Reminiscent of Palm Pre
Take the form factor of the Palm Pre and slide in the vastly superior Android OS – what do you get? Alcatel’s OT-980 handset, that’s what. Take a look at the video below of the smart phone and you’ll see what happens when you combine that slide-up design of the Palm with our favorite mobile operating system.Â While the specs aren’t anywhere near spectacular, that’s likely the point.Â The word is that this phone is aiming for entry-level and cost conscious buyers with price point at or below what HTC’s Tattoo goes for – about $300 before carrier subsidy.
Specs for Alcatel OT-980:
- Android 1.6
- Resistive QVGA Touchscreen
- 600 MHz processor
- 192MB RAM
- 2 megapixel camera
- Compass, Accelerometer, WiFi, A-GPS, 3G
- microSD memory card slot
- 1150 mAh battery
According to FrAndroid, the OT-980 will land on Orange at some point within the first half of the year.Â Expect more details, perhaps something official, at Mobile World Congress in the coming weeks.
