Alcatel’s OneTouch 995 first graced our pages back in November, which promised pumped-up specs and a departure from the company’s traditional low-end lineup. We’ve now managed to lay our hands upon the device, and while it sports only Gingerbread (which contradicts those Ice Cream Sandwich rumors), it’s really quite nice — especially given the low price. While the hardware is relatively unassuming, that’s not a bad thing. Instead, the OneTouch 995 manages to include just enough quality components to make the handset both attractive and functional. It features a 1.4GHz CPU, along with an admirable 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 IPS LCD display and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. We were also pleased to see a stock Android 2.3 interface, and Alcatel’s addition of a micro-HDMI port with DLNA support is most definitely welcome. The enclosure itself is quite plasticky, but it’s also comfortable to hold. We’re told the OneTouch 995 will arrive on the market in the near-term, and will sell in the neighborhood of $270. As an important feature for some, it’ll also be available in a variety of colors. To see the company’s finest handset to date, be sure to check out our gallery below.
