Alcatel to launch its One Touch Scribe Easy smartphone

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.
