But today I am actually holding one in my hand and surfing the internet with one: the Alcatel Go Flip:

I must say it is a novelty concept to come up with a device like this in today’s environment. So what you do get with this flip phone?

  • It is a smart phone using Alcatel Kai-OS which is neither Android or iOS based, but providing you with capability of using email, calendar and full HTML5 internet browser.
  • A 2 mega-pixel camera with video capability.
  • Reasonable size display 2.8” display, with a second display of 1.44” when the clam shell is closed.
  • An SD card slot that can take up to 32GB micro SD card.
  • Claim a good battery life that will last for a few days, which is heartening because my current smart phone needs at least one charge during the day.

One of the thing I think will be a challenge for everyone is the keyboard input via the phone keypad! How many people would be able to do so with ease? 10 years ago this was popular because the young ones were able to adapt quickly and use the phone keyboard. Today, how many people will want to go back and use this archaic typing method?

Enjoy & Bye for now.
