The Alcatel One Touch 980 (stylized 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 noted to resemble the Palm Prē.[3]


The One Touch 980 has been met with mixed reviews. CNET UK awarded the phone 2.5 out of 5 stars, praising the phone for its budget price, QWERTY keyboard and decent performance but criticizing the screen sensitivity and how outdated the user interface felt.[4] TechRadar gave the phone 3 out of 5 stars, praising its battery life but criticizing the camera and the phone's thickness.[5]
