The Alcatel 800 White is a colour variant of the original 800 series. The phone is also available in a variety of other colours which include apple green, hot pink and ocean blue. The unit is an impressively styled unit which offers a colourful outer casing which is eye-catching. The handset measures 111 mm x 58 mm wide and is only 13 mm thick. Its front face encompasses a TFT display screen and a QWERTY keyboard which is located underneath it, much in the same vein as a Blackberry. The unit weighs 102 g in weight.

The Alcatel 800 White comes with a 2.2 inch TFT display screen, which offers extraordinarily colourful imagery. This is in part due to its ability to display 256,000 colours at a pixel screen size of 320 x 240 pixels. Its primary means of accessing functionality is a central scroll wheel which is located on the front face in between the screen and the QWERTY keyboard. In addition the handset also provides a G sensor and a variety of widgets. The main element of this handset is its QWERTY keyboard, which is become a growing trend amongst manufacturers as consumer demand increases. The keyboard is responsive and offers quick and effective data and text entry.

A 2.0 megapixel camera is included within this handset which operates at 1600 x 1200 pixels. Imagery taken with this camera is of suitably good enough quality to be displayed on the screen but at this resolution some may find printing out a little disappointing. The camera also doubles up as a video capture device and provides this alternative as an option to its user.

A series of additional extras which include an MP3/MP4 player, document viewer, organiser, calculator and voice memo facility are also included within the package. In addition an FM stereo radio which comes with RDS is included. The phone comes with internal memory of 20 MB, which is somewhat small, however by utilising the microSD card slot which is built into the unit this can be significantly expanded upon up to an impressive 4 GB.

GPRS, EDGE, Blue tooth and USB are all included within this unit and provide multiple means of connectivity for a variety of tasks which include file sharing and downloading and synchronising with a PC.

The White Alcatel 800 encapsulates the essence of the current mobile phone market. It offers an affordable, functional handset which provides all of the current most popular features that are requested by the consumer. Its popularity is down to simplicity of use and affordability.
