Alcatel OT-980 review


Budget Android twisted together with a QWERTY keyboard

Lots of third party apps pre-installed ; Mini qwerty keyboard is nicely made ; Good battery life ; Android 2.1 is nicely up to date ; Good web browser despite small screen

Camera is low resolution ; Abysmal shutter lag ; Not much built in memory ; Chunky build ; Small screen

Alcatel makes no bones about the aim of the OT-980. This handset is about the mass market, and its £99.95 pay-as-you-go price from Carphone Warehouse indicates that it is a pretty affordable option as far as Android is concerned.

A near flawless mapping experience with a fast and accurate A-GPS with the added bonus of Layar being pre-installed

Alcatel may have been able to keep the cost down by using a resistive touch-screen but it results in a wholly frustrating experience

OT-980 runs a skinless version of Android – Eclair 2.1 – so it's

There are plenty of budget Android handsets to choose from and the Alcatel OT-980 would be pretty low down on our list

Alcatel OT-980 review


Alcatel is well know for its budget handsets, and it has a solid reputation in that market. The manufacturer has decided to join in with the smartphone brigade, though, and the OT-980 is the company's first Android-toting smartphone.

On the plus side the version of Android used is 2.1, there's HSDPA support to 7.2Mbps download too. And you get the usual Android handset goodies of Wi-Fi and GPS. A 3.5mm headset connector means you can replace the rather poor supplied earphones with...

Alcatel OT-980


Introducing the Alcatel OT-980, an 'entry-level' handset planned to be released in the UK below £100!

Alcatel is not that well known in the US but in the UK they make decent phones on a budget and the OT-980 is their first with Android! Not much is known about this particular handset yet but some specs have been confirmed including a 2.8" inch...
