Alcatel C635 Fashion Phone
Alcatel today expanded its fashion phone line with the C635. Purple tint with swirls is in keeping with the latest fashion trends, the French cellphone maker claims; at the same time, the phone is geared to essentialist phone users who don't need more than a few key extras, making it accessible to more users. A VGA-resolution camera and Java support for games are its key features, but are bolstered by an exceptional 6.5 hours of active talk time and 320 hours of standby.
The C635 will be available shortly through Virgin Mobile in Britain for $77. Alcatel hasn't indicated whether or not the phone has the necessary GSM band needed to reach the US. [via Tech Digest]
