Hi all, and especially knight rider!!! I'm using this mobile phone since few months ago, and what i can tell you, it's a very good phone. Ok, it's not a 3G, but it's good enough to go on the net, to receive your mail as push mail, for messaging, for the social networking services and so on. I didn't like this kind of "blackberry" phone, but trust me, this one gonna be one of the best phone of the year with a very cheap price. Personnaly, if i don't have a phone and not much money, i gonna buy this one the first day it'll be launch. But i got it already! Very easy to use and good quality. Try it, you will love it!!
I hope that alcatel will also make this model (Alcatel OT-S689C) available in gsm.
Alcatel is announcing a new phone called Alcatel OT-S689C but it is in cdma. Please click this link for more details ==>> http://www.wapzon.com/devicedetail.asp?m=Alcatel_OT-S689C&Pid=15641&Bid=2
hi...could any1 leme know as to when this phone would be available in india
Indeed I am not responsible for the naming, but I personally also like this name. It is indeed like; you can communicate any way you want with this phone, by calling, by sms, by mms, by email, and by websites such as facebook, myspace, bebo, gadu gadu, friendster, hi5, which are all supported by this handset. So it is really like how tribes speak to each other, each one has their own way.
Very cool phone, so far it has been FLAWLESS for me even in testing... excellent value for money. 9 out of 10 for me.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2009Knight Rider, do you why alcatel called this model "tribe"? Why?lol..i don't think KnightRider can be responsible for the naming scheme. I think the name "Tribe" suits this phone as it enables people to communicate with his or her loved ones and friends ala his/her Tribe.
knight rider, 25 Jul 2009Officially a European launch is still being considered.ivan,
is the OT-S988W gonna be available worldwide?
Knight Rider, are you also working with the OT S988W. Most of the web pages i've visited tells that this model is for China only. How true it is?
Are you sure about that? As far as i know this is a global phone, yes some countries might not get it due to the lack of a dealer partner, but still most should get this in one form or another.
its a shame this phone will not be available in middle east ,, i just sent alcatel an e-mail and they said it will not be available for middle east
O.M.G. i am soOOO eCited b/c i Am so GettinG thiS phone 2maRRow...thatz when they arrive were i live and the guy who works there said if there not there by 2marrow then i get a discount on it so im pretty suRe it iz going to come 2marrow...and i showed my friends a picture of this phone and now there getting one 2...im waking up early 2 get it....i'v been waiting to buy it for like 2 weeks now...im 13 and this is my first phone ever...the thing is i gotta pay my own bills and buy the phone but its all good...im still getting it 2marrow cuz i allready got enough money
The phone is just being rolled out in the LATAM markets, the rest is following this month.
still no news about the availability of the phone ?? anybody bought the phone ?
i think they ship to malyasia as i found that they ship to my country (Egypt) so i think that they cover worldwide pretty much well. by the way i contacted our local distributor and they don't seem to know any thing about the phone or the shipping date so i guess the phone isn't released yet
