MWC 2013: Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD

Alcatel's oleophobophone

At its Mobile World Congress stand, Alcatel is showing off one of the new offerings in its One Touch smartphone range.

First presented at CES 2013, the One Touch Scribe HD is an Android Jelly Bean smartphone with a 5-inch LCD IPS display with 1280 x 720-pixel resolution and oleophobic coating (oleophobic means resistant to oil—as in, that oily film that coats your dainty fingers all day, every day—don't worry, I'm sure your coating is clean and pure).

The Scribe HD has a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of storage, with a microSD slot that allows you to up the storage up to 32 GB with a flash memory card.


The Scribe HD supports 3G+ networks (but not LTE) and has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS.


The rear-facing camera has an 8-Megapixel sensor and the front webcam shoots in 720p. Alcatel says the 2,500 mAh battery provides up to five hours of 3G talking time.
