Hot on the heels of the One Touch Scribe X, launched at CES last month, comes Alcatel’s latest addition the more mid-market One Touch Scribe Easy.
The firm is launching the One Touch Easy at Mobile World Congress, being held in Barcelona. The smartphone runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and sports a 5-inch IPS HD display (with a 720 by 1280 resolution). It also boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 8-megapixel camera. The camera supports full HD video (1080p) recording and playback.
The main selling point of the phone is that you get all that for around $130 (£85).
It also comes with a MagicFlip cover to keep the display safe and clean and the display itself comes with special oil and fingerprint-proof glass panel to keep it nice and shiny. The phone itself is available in four colours: Flash Red, Flash Yellow, Pure White or Black.
It features 4GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM. It also has a MicroSD card slot that will support up to 32GB cards.
Apps-wise, the phone is packed with several apps that take advantage of the bundled stylus pen. The apps include Scribe note for note taking and sketching, including handy handwriting recognition; Montage movie maker app as well as the usual Facebook and Twitter. The movie app allows users to show video on large screen televisions via Wi-Fi.
The phone will be launched in the UK and most other European countries in April with the Russians getting their hands on the phone slightly earlier in March.
