mohammed, 15 Jul 2009don dont be upset you can always order the phone online from alcatel's online store you can ... moreHi Mohd, thanks for the advice. but i don't think ordering online works because they can't send to my country (Malaysia). There used to be a distributor here where i had gotten my previous 6 Alcatel phones from but they had switched to other brands. Can't get it in Singapore too :(
dont be upset you can always order the phone online from alcatel's online store you can just visit musicmobilebyalcatel.com website and you will find the link there
I'm pretty pissed that there's no way i could get this or the OT-708, coz there's nobody selling it here!
that is the best news i hear today ,, thanx very much knight rider for this info ,, i will be looking for the phone and i will will call our local dealer tomorrow to find more about the availability of the phone.. i cant wait to buy it
The phone is about to hit the market as we speak. The last moment developments are being done to the firmware. Expect the phone launch in some markets within the next 1-4 weeks. And for the ones wondering what if the phone gets new software and i buy the phone early, don't worry... you can update the firmware from your own PC on this phone. For more info email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
the alcatel site has been updated you can now find the ot800 on their page with the official specifications
Martin Montenegro, 11 Jul 2009Alcatel is always the same, same benefits at lower price, made good! don´t u think?Hell yeah!
mohamed, 05 Jul 2009knight rider can you tell us more about the phone ,, like the sound quality and the headset... morePage 54 of OT-800 One Touch Tribe states that we can watch/record unlimited lenght of videos as long as the battery sustains and there is still enough memory.
Alcatel is always the same, same benefits at lower price, made good! don´t u think?
i agree with Don and nelson...
never compare one thing with another.. apple should be compared with apple, not with other fruits...
5800 is touchscreen and high mid-end phone... this one is not...
can you tell us more about the phone ,, like the sound quality and the headset volume as the soung on the v770 was low on both the speaker and the headset ,, also can you tell us about the quality of the screen ,, can we watch movies and videos on it ?
thank you very much
I also agree with you, Don. This is not a touch screen phone but still loaded with great features.
Jamaica, 03 Jul 2009Knight Rider, you claimed to have used this phone for two weeks, how do you compare this with ... moreeventhough this question is directed at KR, i would like to add my 2cents' worth, if you don't mind:
I think it is unfair to compare this phone to the Omnia and 5800..as both of them costs twice as much as the OT800 (correct my if i am wrong). This phone is designed for messenging on the cheap..with QWERTY keyboard layout, as compared to smartphones and touchscreens. honestly i can't think of any competitor right now, in the price range, for this phone.
Knight Rider, 01 Jul 2009No, no TV out will be put into this model nor was it ever planned. Those kind of features are ... morein that case, maybe ill just have to wait fior the ALCATEL SMART PHONE, huh? hehehe... goodluck ivan
Knight Rider, you claimed to have used this phone for two weeks, how do you compare this with Samsung Omnia or Nokia 5800 Music Express?
No, no TV out will be put into this model nor was it ever planned. Those kind of features are more suitable for smartphones which Alcatel is working on.
Release date is somewhere in August, right now the phone is going through its final tests.
Knight Rider, is alcatel not planning to add feature in this model like TV (with TV record) or maybe even TV out function. It will be very nice if this TV or TV out function be added into this model plus (if possible) handwriting recognition feature. If this will happen, I will sell my NOKIA 5800 MUSIC express for this.
