Alcatel is well known globally for wireless services and lately it has been spotted making a few appearances in the smartphone segment as well. In India itself, we have several products from Alcatel. Though in an economy like that of India, Alcatel has never seen an uprising for itself in terms of profits, but in other global markets its smartphones have seemed to be serving the purpose of their creation very well. Lastly we mentioned Alcatel-Lucent on our blog because of its corporate deal with Nokia to create Nokia’s next generation smartphones which are expected to hit the market next year.
