Alcatel Announces Android-Powered One Touch Shockwave

By - Source: CNET | B 3 comments

Phone is available now for less than $50.

Alcatel has announced its previously teased Android-powered One Touch Shockwave for US Cellular customers. The Alcatel One Touch Shockwave is powered via an 800 MHz processor and features a 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The handset runs on the year-old Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

With shock resistant casing, Dragontail tempered glass, and a sealed case design with rubber port covers, it's definitely tougher than your average phone. It's even got an anti-slip finish to help prevent the drops that cause damage.

"Today's on-the-go customer doesn't want to compromise looks and performance for durability," said Reza Sadr, Carrier Sales Director at ALCATEL ONE TOUCH. "The ONE TOUCH Shockwave provides a tough exterior in a low profile case and provides quick-access tools for social media, productivity and entertainment."

The smartphone is now available through U.S. Cellular for $49.99 on smartphone compatible plans.

    Gingerbread? Really? This is idiotic.

    It's not like they have to buy an Android OS license and they can't afford the most recent version...
    Morons. And they have the nerve to talk about "performance".

    The spec is a total turn off. At least run ICS man. Yes, single core phones can run ICS.

    This is just plain sad. Shame on the author who even posted this.
