THE Alcatel one touch TRIBE 838
Email, text and share with friends
ALCATEL ONE TOUCH announces the ONE TOUCH TRIBE 838, a unique feature phone designed for keeping in touch, fast. Neat and compact, it’s packed with powerful messaging features, including deep Facebook integration, push email and preloaded Twitter, plus a hard-button QWERTY keyboard and ONE TOUCH Apps, a new service bringing smart phone style apps to feature phones.
Deep Facebook integration allows you to sync your friends’ details and photos with your phonebook, and import their birthdays to your calendar. Notifications and updates are pushed directly to you so you never miss a message and you can upload pictures from the camera in just one touch. Also pre-loaded with Twitter, so you can start sharing your thoughts straight away, or you can join the conversation using the powerful Palringo aggregator, which pulls together more than a quarter of a million chat groups from around the world. The intuitive Opera Mini browser comes preloaded and there’s fast internet access using Edge or broadband via Wi-Fi.
The carefully angled keys of the ONE TOUCH TRIBE 838’s full QWERTY keyboard and predictive text make it easier than ever to email, use instant messaging, take notes and input contact details. The 37 keys are beautifully spaced and easy to use for quick-fire messaging – even better, the number keys are arranged in standard keypad format, so it’s easier to dial naturally, with one thumb.
ONE TOUCH Apps
ONE TOUCH Apps brings smart phone functionality to feature phones, with an easy-acess online app store offering easy access to a wealth of games, tools, wallpapers and more from around the world.
Small, but beautiful
The 2.4 inches screen offers a resolution of 320x240 pixels, which looks beautifully sharp on this size of display, allowing you to read even small text on web pages, or stream videos in comfort. And on-screen navigation couldn’t be simpler, thanks to the programmable widget bar, controlled using the sensitive five-way D-pad.
Push email makes it easy to keep up with your messages while you’re out and about, and you can also plug the ONE TOUCH TRIBE 838 into your laptop and use it as a modem while you’re on the go, so you can get the internet virtually anywhere.
Music and more
The ONE TOUCH TRIBE 838’s built-in music player lets you sync with the tunes on your PC, and will play back MP3, AAC+ and WMA tracks through the quality headphones. You can add your own wireless headphones using Bluetooth technology and with a 16GB microSD card (optional), there’s room to carry more than 4,000 songs with you. And when you need more, try tuning into the FM radio with RDS.
The 2 megapixel camera with digital zoom lets you get creative and share your snaps instantly with your mates via Facebook, MMS, email or Bluetooth in just one touch.
