Pride of England
Granted, Alcatel is a French company, but there’s no better way to show your love for le rosbifs. The Alcatel OT-602’s back cover comes adorned with the rose emblem of the English rugby squad on the traditional white background. Fire it up, and you’ve got the choice of two rugby-themed ringtons, including the stirring Swing Low, Sweet Chariot – as well as a wallpaper of star Jonny Wilkinson.
It’s touch friendly
All this needs is a gentle prod, not a tackle: the 2.4-inch touchscreen on the Alcatel OT-602 is bright and responsive, letting you browse through pics snapped with the 2.0 megapixel camera, or surf the web via the built in Opera Mini web browser.
It’s a communicator
You can make calls with the England Rugby Phone, naturally, but it can put you in touch with all your friends online too, via the instant messaging client. You can also keep up with all the news – and scores – via the RSS reader, or jump straight to your social network of choice via easy Facebook and Twitter shortcut icons.
It’s a music player
The Alcatel OT-602 can double up as your MP3 player too: with a micro SD card you can listen to all the tunes you want, removing a separate music player from the scrum of your pocket.
Exclusive to O2
The Alcatel OT-602 is exclusive to O2 and a bargain too: it costs just £39.99 on Pay & Go, making it the ideal phone to take with you on a trip down under, lest you lose your pricey smartphone.
