Alcatel’s Yahoo! Phone, the OneTouch Net

If Google is to Android then Yahoo! is to… well Yahoo! No, Yahoo! doesn’t have a mobile OS now but they do have a phone that caters to their popular services courtesy of mobile phone manufacturer, Alcatel.


The Alcatel OneTouch Net is a smartphone, well sort of. Actually, it’s a QWERTY phone that has built-in features that utilize Yahoo’s popular services such as Mail, Messenger, Social Pulse, Flickr, Calendar, etc. A phone made for the hardcore Yahoo! user. It can push mail from your Yahoo! Mail. It has a built-in Yahoo! Chat application. It aggregates your social network updates via Social Pulse. You can get news and articles from feeds or straight from the Yahoo! site.

Aside from those, it’s just a basic QWERTY feature phone. It does all those Yahoo! stuff with its GPRS/EDGE connection. Sorry, no WiFi on this one. It has a 2-megapixel camera that you can immediately upload to your Flickr account aside from sharing it via mail, mms, etc. You can also use it as a music player with its microSD support of up to 8GB.

The Alcatel OneTouch Net is an affordable QWERTY phone priced at Php5,999 and comes in three colors: Yahoo’s white/purple, black/silver and white/silver.
