Federal Communications Commission website can be great source of information about unannounced phones coming soon to the market. For example, a set of documents spotted on FCC website today reveals quite a few details on a handset from Alcatel that we have not heard of so far. The Alcatel Sparq II, as it is our mysterious device, is a sequel to the Alcatel Sparq 606A, a basic messaging device, equipped with slide-out physical keyboard, which debuted on T-Mobile network in 2010.

The Alcatel Sparq II takes after its predecessor in terms of design but apparently comes better specs. Being a typical messaging device, the Sparq II has, in addition to a numerical keypad on the front, a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard for faster and easier typing. The documents also mention Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a camera with a flash, which is something that the original Sparq lacked.
Based on the information included in a draft user manual, the phone might also feature an FM radio, web browser, media player, and support for microSD cards, but unfortunately we have not been able to confirm these details. Just like the original Sparq, it will run on T-Mobile network, but neither the carrier not the manufacturer has announced the Sparq II so far, and there is no word on its pricing and availability.
