Alcatel affordable Android on O2 – Alcatel One Touch 990

French maker Alcatel is planning to release a very affordable phone on O2 in the UK. The smartphone by Alcatel is called One Touch 990 or Alcatel OT-990 and is set to be released in around August of this year.

This Android handset may not be the most powerful on the market, but it still a good device for the price. O2 is targeting Pay-As-You-Go consumers and is offering the Alcatel OT-990 for just £100.

For this price, you’ll get an Android device running Android 2.2 Froyo. An update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread should be available in Q3 of this year. This handset is powered by a 600MHz processor and comes with a 5 megapixel camera with flash. Not so bad considering the Iphone 3GS never had a flash in the first place.

At this price, you don’t really have an excuse not to own an Android device.
