I think some of your criticisms are a little unfair and show a techie bias. There are still many people out there who only have a mobile just-in-case, rather than an important part of their lifestyle. These people would be unlikely to care or even know about bluetooth beyond the occasional tut-tut when they see others walking down the street apparently talking to themselves. Maybe a camera would be nice but again unlikely to get much use and hardly a deal breaker in this market sector. I suggest that size, price and standby battery life are the truly important factors for it's target audience and it seems to fulfill this role well. I doubt it would interest many TR readers though, except as a present for mum.
If it has no radio, what's that last picture of then that says 'Radio' and '101.7'?!
@Simon - that would appear to be a picture of the S320 which appears to be the same phone with the inclusion of FM.
Cheers Simon and Iain - I've swapped out the picture now :)
Simply superb if all you want is a basic mobile phone. No frills, just the ability to stay in touch. I'm an old (well, relatively old) fart who wanted a basic mobile without any cr*p like camera or radio (and both are *horrid* quality on mobies:- go on, admit it... ) The clamshell design protects the screen and the feature set is more than enough to validate the OT-S319 as a 'mobile phonebox wiv extras'. The Alcatel is superbly small and light - its like carrying a WAP enabled mobile phone pebble! (all apologies to the firm who owns the 'pebble' name, I'm sure).
