3GSM Barcelona 2006 live coverage
After selling their mobile division to TCL Mobile, Alcatel was expected to renovate their technologies and offer brand-new mobile solutions. But at the 3GSM Congress were shown only models with old technologies. With the only exception of the S853 model, the company is offering budget handsets.
Alcatel announced a bunch of phones at the 3GSM Congress, but nothing attracted our attention much. Most of the new phones were not functional and were locked in a glass-case. Instead of real displays they had color stickers.
Alcatel now fits their products in five lines
- Zen - E157, E256, E265 and C550
- Black - E100, E259, E260, E801 and S853
- Fashion - E257, ELLE N1, ELLE N2, C630
- Urban sport - E105, E252, C650
- Liquid - C750
We know that the Alcatel fans are expecting an important release for quite some time. The S853 music phone was on display in the Alcatel booth. It is expected to be finally hit the market in March.
