Excerpt: The OT-E100 is a monochrome cellphone from Alcatel and yes that’s not a typo. It is monochrome meaning it doesn’t have a colored display. It does have a fixed, colored wallpaper of a tropical island with coconut trees and someone rowing a boat. Pretty amusing. I thought manufacturers stopped producing monochrome cellphones back in 2000 but it’s a good thing they did not, for Alcatel at least. The OT-E100 is a pretty good phone.
