Alcatel Hits US in Force
Continuing its phone announcements, Alcatel revealed today that it will finally make a permanent North American presence for its phone line through Cellatel. Although the firm has already garnered some early attention on the continent with its Elle GlamPhone, it now plans to use this month's CTIA phone expo to announce that some of its E- and C-series phones will be available beyon limited trials that were run with Cingular last year.
Specific carriers have yet to be mentioned, but should focus primarily around virtual mobile networks in the vein of Helio -- albeit those that use GSM, Cellatel says. CTIA begins March 27th and should provide more information. [via Phone Scoop]
