What we like most about the Alcatel OT-990:

The Alcatel OT-990 has an option for 3, 5, and 7 home screens which is refreshing and ensures that first time smart phone users are not overwhelmed. It only has a 600Mhz processor but can run the apps that we’re all accustomed to using and relying on thanks to it’s to a generous Adreno 200 GPU- proving that in the smart-phone market, the rush to out-do other smart phones with the fastest processor is sometimes more about a selling point and for high end users, rather than about genuine performance on a daily basis for most users.

We love that the Alcatel OT-990 is a simple, user friendly and good looking smart phone that you can be proud to pull out amount all kinds of company, without feeling outdone. It’s a great phone and one of the best we’ve seen in the midrange, budget phone market for quite a while!
