ARCHOS and ALCATEL ONE TOUCH announce a partnership bundling a smartphone with a tablet

ALCATEL ONE TOUCH has partnered with the French manufacturer ARCHOS, leader in the Android-based internet tablet market, to offer a tablet bundled with an Android smart phone. This offer is open to all telecom operators in Europe and the United States.

The proposition fits with the recently unveiled strategy of telecom operators to offer a single subscription for multiple connected devices by mid 2011. Using the ‘’One Touch Connect’’ feature, this bundle lets users share the 3G connection of their smartphone with their ARCHOS internet tablet via the built in WiFi hotspot available in android version 2.2 (Froyo).

Demonstrations will take place at the ALCATEL ONE TOUCH booth – AV06 – during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 14th to 17th of February 2011. During the fair, TCL Communication will also be revealing its new brand identity through ALCATEL ONE TOUCH. The objective of this new identity is to show the strong connection to the customers, and communicate this through a new brand expression together with better design and smarter products.
