In my view, Mobile World Congress is one of the biggest events of the year with huge announcements from a ton of manufactures, one of whom, namely Alcatel have today announced their flagship handsets, the One Touch Scribe Easy and the One Touch Scribe HD, which are obviously their answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Note.
The Scribe Easy has a 5 inch WVGA display, dual core 1.2GHz processor, a 5 megapixel camera on the rear that can record in 720p and a front-facing VGA camera. There’s also something Alcatel are calling HD Sound.
The screen itself has also be coated with an oil and fingerprint-proof glass, which can be protected with the MagicFlip magnetic cover, that features the close/ open to lock and unlock the phone.
The Scribe HD is a little more premium with a 720p 5-inch IPS display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera on the back which can record Full HD video and a second 720p camera on the front.
The pen and MagicFlip cover will also be included.
Both handsets will be available in various colours, the Scribe Easy in red, blue and yellow and the Scribe HD in black, white, red and yellow, the Scribe Easy will ship with Android 4.1 however the Scribe HD will run Android 4.2, both will include dual-SIM variants and include a 2500mAh battery with microSD support.
There’s no release date or pricing to talk about yet, but we will let you know if we find out.
