Alcatel (previously Alcatel ONETOUCH) is a brand of mobile handsets owned by Chinese electronics company TCL Corporation. It was established in 2004 as a joint venture between Alcatel-Lucent (45%) and TCL (55%). In 2005 the joint venture was dissolved and TCL acquired Alcatel's 45 percent share. Since then, Alcatel became a wholly owned subsidiary group of TCL.
TCL Mobile Limited (former name: T&A Mobile Phones Limited) is a member of TCL Communication listed on Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKSE: 2618) which was established in August 2004 by TCL Communication and Alcatel.
TCL Mobile Limited manages three business units: Alcatel, TCL Mobile Phones and Brand Design Lab. Alcatel-Lucent later sold its shares in TCL and is no longer related to the Alcatel mobile phone brand.
The first phone ever produced by Alcatel was the Alcatel OT Easy HF. It was released in 1998 with a stand-by's battery life up to 140 hours.
