T-Mobile Sells £20 Touchscreen Smartphone

T-Mobile has cut the price of the Alcatel OT-813F by two thirds and is offering it exclusively via KGB Deals until midnight tonight. The smartphone costs a whopping £60 on T-Mobile's online store with an extra compulsory £10 topup excluded.

It comes with a full QWERTY keypad plus a 2.4in touchscreen display (possibly with a 320 x 240 pixels resolution). Other features include Bluetooth, GPRS (no 3G), Wi-Fi, a FM radio and audio player, a two megapixel camera, Java capabilities and up to 10 hours battery life as well as a 30 days standby time.

Sadly though there seems to be no microSD card slot and the display is likely to be resistive rather than capacitive. As for the OS, it is a proprietary model from Alcatel itself with built in Facebook access via a dedicated key.

It's worth noting that T-Mobile's £10 top up could allow you to access the web for a fair few months although that will be next to useless on the OT-813F given that it is GPRS-only.
