Alcatel One Touch 997: Alcatel's first waterproof phone

Looks like OT-995 Ultra will no longer be Alcatel's flagship phone, after they released OT-997 Ultra, which obviously is a higher unit. What is new with OT-997 is that it is a waterproof phone, which is a first from the French company.

Alcatel OT-997 sports almost the same features with OT-995, including the 4.3" 16M colors display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution, G-Sensor, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi etc.

What's new with this smartphone is that it has a higher 8MP autofocus camera with flash, a powerful dual core 1GHz processor, surround sound experience with SRS feature, Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, and of course P2i water resistant coating.

Here's the video from Alcatel One Touch's Youtube page:


I'm not sure whether it will be launched here in the Philippines. For the price, I'm sure it will cost more that OT-995 Ultra.

UPDATE:
PRICE: PHP 11,990
