Alcatel One Touch 918N: Dual-SIM Androids are here!

Alcatel’s re-entry into the mobile handset market in the Philippines is marked by two unique features — affordable, dual-SIM Android handsets. The Alcatel One Touch 918N is the latest handset that they released earlier this quarter.

The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N isn’t the first dual-SIM Android phone to be available in the Philippines. The likes of Cherry Mobile and Lenovo already introduced similar handsets since last year.

The first handset they came out with was the black variant and they’ve also introduced a white model lately, which looks way better compared to the dark-blue one.

The dual-SIM implementation is pretty simple but with some limitations — i.e., you will need to place the data SIM on the 1st SIM slot in order to achieve faster 3G speeds; the 2nd SIM slot only supports EDGE/GPRS.

The Alcatel Blaze Glory does not has the most impressive hardware specifications. It’s decent but don’t expect too much from it.

Alcatel OT 918N specs:
650MHz single-core processor
3.2″ LCD display @ 320×480 pixels
512MB ROM
256MB RAM
up to 32GB via mircoSD
HSDPA 14.4Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0 w/ A2DP
3.15MP camera
FM radio tuner
Li-Ion 1300mAh battery
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Running two active SIM in one handset can significantly affect the battery life so that 1300mAh might pose a problem when you have both SIM slots active and running on mobile 3G.

The Alcatel OT Blaze 918N is selling for a suggested retail price of Php5,999 and is available in stores since January. For a more details and comprehesive review of the handset, check-out this review from PTB.
