It’s no secret that some mobile phones should be fashionably stylish and chic to appeal to the female market. Alcatel, however, decided to take it to a new level by introducing the Alcatel Glam 810D, a clamshell phone that looks like a beauty compact.
Outside you’ll see its shiny pink lid (also comes in silver and red) on a slightly chunky body. The lid will also display time or notifications at the press of a button. It also houses the 2 megapixel camera on one corner.
Inside is a 2.4-inch display with a 320 x 240 resolution on one half and a QWERTY keyboard on the other half. To maximize the square space, the layout on the QWERTY keyboard is a bit different than normal QWERTY phones so it will take some time getting used to.
Don’t expect Android here. This is not a full-blown smartphone although it has a built-in Opera web browser, MSN messenger, E-mail, Facebook and Twitter Java apps. You’ll also get an FM Radio, music player and Bluetooth out of this Alcatel Glam phone.
You really won’t buy this phone for its specs but more for its unique looks if you want to be different. It will definitely attract attention when you whip this out from your purse. The Alcatel Glam 810D retails for Php3,999 and should be available in Alcatel stores nationwide.
