French phone manufacturer Alcatel is reportedly set to launch an Android smartphone on the Three network in the UK. But don't get too excited yet, as not only does it not look great, but it's also running the two-year-old Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Alcatel One Touch UK and Ireland country director William Paterson said: “We are extremely pleased to have a handset launching with Three. We feel this will be a great partnership, as Three aims to offer value for money to their customers, just like we aim to do with all our handsets. We are looking forward to working together and launching more handsets in the future.”
The Alcatel One Touch Smart 903 which has a 2.8 inch display will apparently be followed by other devices later this year. As far as specs go this is all we currently know. Let's hope software wise the future devices are a little more up to date. This one had better be as cheap as chips or I have a suspicion it may not do too well.
