Pre-Esque Slider from Alcatel Rocks Android

Some footage and pictures has bubbled up of an upcoming Android handset from Alcatel called the OT-980, a smartphone running OS 1.6, packing Wi-Fi, A-GPS, 3G, 600 MHz processor, 192 MB of RAM, and a 2 megapixel camera. A compass, accelerometer, microUSB plug, microSD memory card slot, and a 1150 mAh battery flesh out the rest of the device. The OT-980 will be aiming for the entry-level, with a price point below even the HTC Tattoo – impressive, considering all of the specs crammed in there. The resistive QVGA touchscreen is apparently very responsive, and has an on-screen keyboard for when you can’t be bothered to slide out the real one. Those in France eager to pick one up, the OT-980 will be released on Orange sometime within the next four or five months, but we’ll for sure be seeing this (and perhaps another Android phone) at MWC in a few weeks.
