Alcatel launches its new One Touch 501 and 701 Mobile Phones

Alcatel launches its new One TouchTM 501 and One TouchTM 701 mobile phones, marking its return to the high-end handset segment. In addition to their sophisticated styling, compact size and light weight, these phones feature an impressive array of advanced features, coupled with maximum ease-of-use.

The new range builds on the benefits that have made Alcatel’s One TouchTM family such a tremendous success and consolidates its top-tier positions in the European market. The latest figures released by DataQuest rank Alcatel third in Europe with a 12.4 percent share of the market in the second quarter of 2000.

One TouchTM 501 handsets come in four metallic colors, underscoring a sober, elegant design for people who place a premium on communications. The One TouchTM 701 is a high-end handset that offers the latest in mobile technology. The refined design and active flip make this phone the ultimate in wireless excellence.

The new Alcatel mobiles are ultra-light too, weighing in at just 103 grams for the One TouchTM 501 and a mere 88 grams for the One TouchTM 701. The latter comes with an ultra-thin Lithium-Polymer battery that provides 300 hours of standby time and 7 1/2 hours’ talktime. The One TouchTM 501 offers 240 hours of standby time and 6 hours of talktime. Both models will come with an 8 lines graphic display and will be available in WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) versions for on-the-move access to a world of interactive services.

All the innovative features available on the One TouchTM 501 and 701 phones can be accessed using the five-position navigation button and animated graphic icons. The result is remarkable comfort, simplicity and efficiency for users. Among the new features are voice recognition and a voice memo mode that lets users record notes. The SMS text messaging service is especially simple, and messages can be sent simultaneously to a group of recipients. Also new is a handy organizer that can be synchronized and stores up to 1,200 appointments. With an agenda to help manage schedules and multiple-field directories that can save up to 500 contact files, the new phones become a full-fledged personal assistant. The handsets have a convenient handsfree feature, along with a discreet vibrating call alert system. This rich package of intelligent features makes the new Alcatel phones the ideal solution for the most exacting users.
