At the CES in Las Vegas, Alcatel has introduced a successor to its OT-800, the Qwerty keyboard phone manufacturer launched last summer. The Alcatel Touch Chrome highlights the main points of its predecessor by adding a chrome front, a back soft touch and function"shake-shake" , which lets you change audio or mute the ringing tone of the flick.

For the rest, it is not real change: same size, same equipment, including a 2-megapixel sensor and even connectivity unfortunately still limited to the Edge and Bluetooth. With a screen of 5.6 inches diagonally, the machine returns to the design of the OT-800 with a wiser colors white and silver. Pink or blue models could also be announced in France.

A knob on the right side of the device facilitates access to information and fun features such as weather, RSS, RDS radio or MP3 player.
