Summary: Alcatel makes no bones about the aim of the OT-980. This handset is about the mass market, and its £99.95 pay-as-you-go price from Carphone Warehouse indicates that it is a pretty affordable option as far as Android is concerned. Still, it is a 3G handset with Wi-Fi, and GPS, and while it is more closely related to the LG Optimus GT540 than the HTC Desire, it is Alcatel's flagship model.
Pros: Lots of third party apps pre-installed Mini qwerty keyboard is nicely made Good battery life Android 2.1 is nicely up to date Good web browser despite small screen
Cons: Camera is low resolution Abysmal shutter lag Not much built in memory Chunky build Small screen
