Alcatel launches first handset with Three


Operator debuts the Alcatel One Touch Smart 903 Android handset

French phone manufacturer Alcatel is today launching a handset on Three’s network for the first time.

The Alcatel One Touch Smart 903 will be followed by more handsets on Three before the end of the year.

The phone runs on a Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, and comes with what Alcatel describes as ‘smartphone basics’, including a web browser, movie and music players, still/video camera, email, social networking apps, and Wi-Fi.

It has a 2.8-inch touch screen and will offer a 3G network connection, and comes with a 2GB microSD card which can be upgraded to 32GB storage capacity.

Alcatel One Touch UK and Ireland country director William Paterson said: “We are extremely pleased to have a handset launching with Three. We feel this will be a great partnership, as Three aims to offer value for money to their customers, just like we aim to do with all our handsets. We are looking forward to working together and launching more handsets in the future.”
