Alcatel has been focusing on smartphones, releasing one phone after the other, at a very competitive and affordable price. Although, it seems in the Philippine mobile market, the French company has mellowed a bit, after Lenovo and its P700 gained the spotlight.
I don't know when will Alcatel release this phone in the country, but according to GSMArena, its scheduled to be released August this year. What I'm talking about is the Alcatel One Touch 993, one of the phones presented at the MWC 2012 (Mobile World Congress 2012).

Alcatel One Touch 993, if it will be released here, (and i'm hoping it will) will be a strong contender against Lenovo P700. They almost have the same specifications, except for the battery. The phone is also slim and is truly a beauty. If it will have a lower price than Lenovo's battery monster, One Touch 993 will surely be a hit. Plus, it will be the first Alcatel phone to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box!
Here are Alcatel One Touch 993 specifications:
- 4.0" TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16 M colors 480 x 800 pixels, (233 ppi pixel density)
- 1 GHZ CPU
- internal memory (?), memory expandable up to 32 GB
- 5MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, VGA front camera
- bluetooth, wi-fi, accelerometer, A-GPS, stereo FM radio
- 1,500 mAh battery
- Android 4.0 ICS
