Alcatel Tribe Touch 813D Available Now in the Philippines

If you are looking for a reasonably-priced touch phone, Alcatel Touch One might give you one of the best choices; they could offer not just a simple touch screen unit but also a Wifi-enabled phone. Philippines is one of the Alcatel’s best place when it comes to trendy-affordable unit designs and they recently launched one of their latest mobile phones – The Tribe Touch 813D.

The Tribe 813D is a touch phone with a dual-sim capacity and 2.4” screen display. It is also equipped with 2mega pixel camera, a micro SD slot for memory expansion up to 16GB, Bluetooth, Mp3 and FM radio. It has also QWERTY keyboard and if you are a social networking savvy, you will be happy on its integrated Facebook and Twitter java-based application.

The only drawback of this phone is that it is not a 3G handset, but considering the price, I might say, it’s a win-choice. =) For Php 3,999 you will have a Wifi-enabled phone that will surely give you internet mobility while at range of an access point.
