Alcatel making a tasty Windows Mobile phone for China Unicom


Alcatel is not a name we very often associate with Windows Mobile phones, but it seems we should be paying a bit more attention.

They have produced the Alcatel OT-S988W for China Unicom. It runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and features a sliding QWERTY keyboard, quad-band GSM connectivity, plus UMTS 2100MHz. The device also features a 3.2 inch 240×400 pixel screen, slide-out keyboard and, encouragingly, a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The full specs are:

  • 3.2 inch touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels
  • Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 528 MHz Qualcomm CPU
  • 256MB of RAM, 256MB of ROM
  • 110 x 55 x 15.1 mm
  • 124 grams
  • With specs this good this device is certainly not low-end, and one can hope Alcatel decides to bring this attractive smartphone to the west also.
