Alcatel One Touch Glory officially launched in the Philippines: 3.5" 1Ghz Android Jellybean phone for PHP 4,990

In celebration of their 20 years in the mobile business, Alcatel One Touch, through their local iteration (Alcatel Mobile Philippines) will be launching a set of phones, all of which where unveiled on the MWC this year. First in line is the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2 (One Touch S'Pop), the successor of the famous Glory 918N. 

Although Glory 2 has been available in Sun Shops for free on Plan 350, it's only this month that the unlocked version became available. Anyway, this device is dual-sim. :) 

It's been featured HERE in the blog before but for your benefit, here are the specs of the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2:

3.5" HVGA capacitive touchscreen, 320 x 480 pixels (165ppi)
1GHz Mediatek MT6575 processor
4GB ROM (2GB user available)
expandable up to 32GB with a microSD card
512MB RAM
3.2MP rear camera
VGA front camera
Sensors: Gravity/Proximity/Light
Bluetooth (4.0)/WiFi/3G connectivity
A-GPS
microUSB 2.0
stereo FM Radio
dual-sim, dual-standby
Android 4.1 Jellybean
Dimensions: 115 x 61.2 x 12.2mm
1400 mAh battery
254h standby (2G), 350h (3G)
5h talktime (2G), 6h (3G)
3h 40 min charging time
PRICE: PHP 4,990

A nice upgrade at a nice price. You get a 3.5" screen (maybe small for users with big hands), a 1GHz processor, sufficient 3.2MP camera as well as a front camera for video calls. Plus it runs Jellybean which is good.

Colors available are black, aubergine, cherry red, ocean blue, slate, hot pink, tangerine, turquoise, green apple, and pure white. Some users said that only black and white are available but I presume the other colors are interchangeable covers.
