The ALCATEL ONE TOUCH 980 (stylised as one touch 980 and commonly abbreviated as Alcatel OT-980) is a touchscreen slider smartphone manufactured by TCL Communication. The phone was announced on February 15, 2010 at the Mobile World Congress.[2] The Alcatel One Touch 980 was the first Alcatel to run the Android operating system, running version 2.1 "Éclair". The phone has been known to bear a strong resemblance with the phone, Palm Prē.[3]


The ALCATEL ONE TOUCH 980 has been met with mixed reviews. CNET UK awarded the phone a 2.5/5. They praised the phone for its budget price, QWERTY keyboard and its decent performance but criticized the screen sensitivity and how out-dated the user interface felt.[4] TechRadar gave the phone a slightly more positive review giving it 3 out of 5 stars but criticized the disappointing camera and how chunky the phone was due to the QWERTY keyboard.[5]
