Windows Phone 7.8-powered Alcatel One Touch View
Their newest device is likely to be called Alcatel One Touch View, ith specs making it a competitor to the Nokia Lumia 610 and the rumored Lumia 510.
According to Hi-Tech Mail.ru, the One touch View will be powered by a Snapdragon MSM7227A chipset with a single 1GHz Scorpion core, 512MB of RAM and Adreno 200 GPU (both Lumias have 256MB RAM, which limits app compatibility).
The screen on the Alcatel WP7.8 phone will reportedly be a 4″ IPS LCD of WVGA resolution. The phone will have a 5MP main camera (likely shooting VGA video) with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera.
Connectivity features include 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The phone has only 4GB of built-in storage (of which 2.9GB will be available to the user) and since this is WP7.8 it’s not expandable.
The Alcatel One Touch View is expected to launch by the end of the year and for Russian users it will be offered with a price set at 8000 rubles or less ($260, €200). The Nokia Lumia 510 is rumored to have a $150 price.
