The Most Basic Phone For New Users

Not a lot of companies think about the common individual. Instead, they release high-tech mobile phones with the latest gadgets and gizmos for the classy and hip 21st century citizen. So what do newcomers to the mobile phone industry have to settle for? Well aside from phones for children and those resurrected from the 90s, Alcatel has a solution.

The company incorporated in France has introduced the OT-S520, a simple mobile phone anyone can operate. Alcatel kept things pretty basic with this model that has a 1.8” colour screen and a 0.3 megapixel camera. Some would say the model is a bit too simple, but when you don’t know how to operate a GPS system or even download a ringtone, a device like the OT-S520 can introduce you to technology.

Other features of Alcatel’s latest phone include:

- MP3 ringtone support.

- 10 hours of “talk time”.

- 400 hours of standby time.

- Pre-installed games.

- Speaker phone.

- HTML MP web browser.

- USB connectivity.

Am i missing something?

Aren't equivalent phones like this already available? And ones even more basic?
Im sure the fishmonger in the local fish market here (India) owns something like this.
