Press release:

ALCATEL has introduced the uber coolALCATEL OneTouch Net on Tata DOCOMO.It’s offering Free Y!

It specially designated ‘Y!’ key keeps the user updated with all the latest happenings in the world. Further as the handsets name suggests, the user has ‘One Touch’ access various Yahoo services including Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Messenger with Tata DOCOMO. This means that Tata DOCOMO has ensured that the user can literally access his Yahoo mail from anywhere and keep in touch with his friends on the go.

Having had the opportunity to use this phone, it probably seems right to say that the ALCATEL One Touch Net on Tata DOCOMO has got the looks and features of a high tech cellular phone. Primarily it’s the looks that make this handset stand out from the rest. It will be available in 4 different trendy colour combinations; black- silver, black-purple, white-silver and white-purple. It’s got a nice curvy shape to it which also makes it easier to grip in your hand as you type away on the QWERTY keypad. Another aspect of note would be that unlike other handsets with similar features, the ALCATEL OneTouch Net is surprisingly affordable priced at below Rs. 6,000. Overall it’s like buying a trendy blackberry that is especially designed for youth.

Extra Incentive for buyer:

As a promotion of this phone, Tata DOCOMO are offering some exciting prizes and incentives for buyer.

Tatat DOCOMO are offering two options as a prepaid and postpay connection and people who opt for prepaid connection will get free Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Email access for lifetime and also 250MB bandwidth usage for 1 year.

People who will be opting for Postpay connection will be getting Reebok watch worth 2499/-, with some exclusive plans like free STD and local calls.

Review:

With the price tag of 5499 INR, i.e $120 the price is just right. In terms of design and look, this phone looks pretty neat and well crafted. One thing which I really liked about this phone is you can expand memory slot till 8GB, while will make your phone a music player with decent music quality. If you are one of those who likes to click pictures everywhere, this budget mobile is for you as 2MP camera gives clear pictures. Though flash is missing in the camera.

QWERTY keyboard is nice but new user might take some time to get use to it’s joystick.

Rating:

Overall I will give 4/5 to this phone from Docomo, looking at it’s features and price tag. With the price of 5499/- INR, I can’t expect this phone to have more.

It will be good to see how Tata Docomo phone will perform in this competitive market when we have more budget phone from well established mobile manufacturer like nokia and Samsung.

What do you think about this phone? Do you think it’s price tag and extra incentive like free Yahoo Email and messenger access, will appeal users.

We will also be running a contest which will help you win this phone for free by answering one simple question.

  1. What I find low in its specs is the colors, just 65k. At this price, it must at least have a 262k color screen.

  2. I liked this phone very much at rs.5500, with really cool design and internet facilities by Yahoo! makes this phone even cooler.
    Hope it does good in market irrespective of its name (am saying this because many in India don’t know name Alcatel.)

  3. I believe this phone isn’t worth the price at all.
    Something at 3k ( I insist) or under 4k should be right.

    A phone with “Alcatel” brand (Chinese??) and 5.5k pricing? The joystick seems horrible.
    The cheapest qwerty is under 2k and with the same features we have qwertys under 3-4k (spice, fly, micromax). If I’m the kind of person who’s gonna need 8GB, then for sure, I wouldn’t fall under the category of people using a cheap querty. If I’m the social guy, then I must have forgotten yahoo during the gmail invite-only days itself ( I did forget).
    If I’m looking at docomo and a cheap qwerty, then I would go with any other brand that allows dual SIM. So, to whom is this phone actually targeted at?

    Are there anyone still anyone around in the technosphere using yahoo mail or Y! messenger?? A serious useless addon. I do not want it even if I’m allowed to sit logged in or browse entire yahoo for free.

    I would have definitely given a consideration if it has free access to gtalk/facebook/twitter :D
