Alongside the Idol Ultra, Alcatel have used CES 2013 to show off their own Samsung Galaxy Note rival, the Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD.
A 5-inch Android 4.1.2 1.2GHz quad-core device, it features a 5-inch 1280 x 720 IPS display and has 1GB of RAM. That quad-core is a MT6589 SoC from MediaTek.
A capacitive stylus (not dissimilar to the Galaxy Note’s S-Pen) is also included, with the handset shipping with specialised pen-focussed apps including a notebook and movie editor.
4GB of storage is included (which can be expanded with microSD cards), letting you store snaps from the 8MP rear camera and 720p video recordings. A 2,500mAh battery sits under the hood.
A magnetic flip cover, similar to Apple’s Smart Cover, protects the screen, with the overall design of the handset reminiscent of the HTC One X.
Expect to pay around $400 for the One Touch Scribe HD when it launches in Q3 Stateside. Now rod yet on a UK release or pricing, but we’ll keep you posted.
