If you prefer not to sign up any lengthy service agreements, the Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960c can be yours for $199.99 without contract.
Introducing Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960c
The Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960c for Alltel has pretty unassuming specs but that is to be expected considering its price and target market. The Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960C is that it features a 4.3-inch capacitive multi-touch WVGA display with highly durable Dragontail glass with sun legibility on the front. There is a 5 megapixel camera with video recorderr on the back with auto focus, touch focus, flash, image stabilization and 720p HD video recording, thank to which you will be able to capture every important moment of your life. The front-facing camera is good for self-portraits, and can perform video calls.
The phone is powered by a single-core 1.4 GHz processor and has a 1500 mAh battery, which according to the manufacturer, guarantees up to 5 hours talk time and up to 420 hours standby time. So far so good, but now we come to somewhat less impressive features. The Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960C runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and so far we have not been able to confirm possible updates to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but of course we are keeping our fingers crossed.
Although Gingerbread is now two generations old, it is still Android so you get access to Google Mobile Services, for example Google Play Store, where thousands of apps, games, books, movies, and videos are just waiting for downloading, many of them for free. The phone comes pre-loaded with social networks apps (Facebook and Twitter), battery saver and data traffic manager apps, and a document viewer and editor, so that those using their device for work can easily see and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents and also Adobe PDF files on the go.
The Touch One Ultra 960C also sports Bluetooth version 3.0 for wireless connection with other Bluetooth enabled devices, SWYPE virtual keyboard for fast and easy typing, built-in DLNA support for streaming multimedia content on multiple screens, and microUSB port.
The Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960C still yet comes with a few mysteries still waiting to be unraveled, for example, neither the manufacturer nor the carrier has revealed the amount of RAM and internal storage, though it is expected that the phone will be equipped with microSD card slot for memory expansion compatible with up to 32 GB cards.
