Alcatel OT-980

What had better be the cheapest Android smartphone ever, the Palm Pre-esque Alcatel OT-980, will soon show up on the shelves in Europe.  We talked about this one ages ago (in Android time anyway) when the specs sounded better, check it out.  We have no dates, but supposedly in the UK this August and very soon in France.  We do however, have some supposed final specs.  Those of you not into the bottom end style Androids, avert your eyes.

  • Android 1.6
  • 2.8 inch 240x320 resistive touchscreen
  • 70 MB internal storage
  • microSD card slot (you'll need it!)
  • 3.5 mm headset jack
  • 2 Megapixel camera
  • 1150 mAh battery
  • HSDPA, 802.11 b/g, bluetooth 2.0

At least it's the vertical slider many of us have been wanting.  Almost :)  Couple more pics after the break.  [Unwired View]
