Simple. Different. Smart. Easy-to-use. Equipped with technology people need most.
All of the above tells me it’s a mass market approach for Alcatel in 2013, which is frankly not a bad thing. I had the privilege to see some of the products launched few weeks back and though I didn’t actually review any, first impression were favourable.

    For real? Alcatel jumping on the bandwagon too? I’m interested to see how that would work out for everyone; the public, the market of gadgets and among its competitors – ZTE, Hua Wei to name a few

    I echo waht @bytebot said on twitter. Androids are a commodity nowadays and the easiest to leverage on, great for phone makers without their own OS ( unlike Nokia, etc.).
