This is now available at the Carphone Warehouse(UK) on O2 for £129.95. I think that price is far too high for this phone. It should be atleast £30 cheaper. I was looking forward to the release of this phone but I wont be buying it at this price as there are a few other android handsets by other manufactures for £100 or less.
I like it, will probably give x10 min pro a miss.
But no camera flash...!!!
carphone warehouse says expected october :(
very unhappy but hopefully will be coming!
excellent phone spec cant wait to get one!
J, 30 Jul 2010The black/silver version of this phone is now listed on the Carphone Warehouse(UK) website as ... moreIt says that it is android 2.1 eclair on the carphone warehouse and the phone will be out later this month in black. It will be in between £60 and £110 and it doesn't state the network it will be on. When the phone was first announced it was only android 1.5 but alcatel have updated it. When this phone is out I will probably be buying it from the carphone warehouse in september. I hope that GSMArena do a review on this phone because it's definitely Alcatel's best mobile!
finally an alcatel phone with a WIFI inclusive ,
considering the costs etc i think its a brilliant one...touch sen..thingi kind of stalls on 1-10 ,take 7
The black/silver version of this phone is now listed on the Carphone Warehouse(UK) website as "Coming Soon- Expected: August 2010" :) :) :)
It also states that it comes with 15 apps pre-loaded including games and facebook + twitter app. It doesnt mention which network it will be available on or what version of Android it comes with, but recent articles on some websites suggest its v2.1(Eclair) It also doesnt mention a price, but it will probably be below £100 :)

Anonymous, 12 May 2010Can anyone comment on the version of the OS? Some source says it's going to be based on Androi... moreyou can check the phone on alcatel's official blog www.somuch2share.com you will find all info about the new 2010 models,, and the phone will be shipped with android OS version 2.1
Can anyone comment on the version of the OS? Some source says it's going to be based on Android 2.1, but here it says it's 1.6. It's confusing. (http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/18/alcatel-ot-980-with-android-hands-on-we-feel-frugal-just-lookin/)
I think that GSMArena should hurry up and write a review for this phone because i would like to see how the user-iterface really works and looks and how the music player and things like that work :)
I can't wait to get this mobile! It's seems like the perfect mobile phone for me. Although, it's a little bit ugly, and I think alcatel can do better. Recently their mobiles have been good and I must admit, very fun and interesting to use, and that's why I can't wait for this phone to be released, especially because it's got android, I think it will be great. Though I also think this could have a better camera, since it's suppost to be one of the best alcatel mobiles so far. I think anyone who loves social networking, a good working phone, a qwerty keyboard and doesn't really care about cameras and things like that should definately buy this device, because it's priced at under £100!
My God..according to Cellatel.com (TCL Alcatel's North American distributors), the OT-980 would only be available after September 2010! They are starting to make feature-rich phones but they still need to bring the products to the marker ASAP!
Due to some personal issue that i need to resolve my customer assistance service was delayed and emails that have been sent to me have not been attended to. But I will soon be getting internet back up and running again on my own pc so I will get back to all the emails that have been sent to me, I promise!
In the mean time keep sending me emails if you have troubles with Alcatel or any other questions. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
