ALCATEL ONE TOUCH and Alltel Wireless just announced that they are bringing the ONE TOUCH Ultra 960C to stores and online. It comes with a 4.3-inch capacitive multi-touch display, which is not going to set the world on fire, but it’s available for a very affordable price. This is certainly not a top of the line Android device, but for new Android users not looking to drop big money on a phone, this might be a good choice.
The device comes with a 1.4GH processor, which should be sufficient for causal smartphone users. It has Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed out of the box. While it might be a little dated in terms of available Android versions, it’s still decent. It has full access to Google Play for downloading your favorite apps.
The ONE TOUCH Ultra 960C comes with a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and 720p HD video camera. The camera has touch focus and digital image stabilization. The device is really thin, and the lower megapixel camera allows it to keep a slimmer form factor.
The device is designed to be affordable, and it’s only $19.99 with a 2-year contract. For users looking to snag one without commitment, Alltel Wireless has them for $199. While it may lack some of the power of high-end Android devices, it seems like a perfect starter phone, especially at $19.99.
