Alcatel One Touch M'Pop

 Alcatel has shown some interesting new phones at CES, from the first to feature a quad-core MediaTek processor to the slimmest smartphone yet. With its 5-inch display, the Scribe HD is indeed Alcatel's largest new phone on display. It's the first phone ever to be powered by MediaTek's 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 chipset. The phone is running a mostly stock version of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). The Scribe HD is made of sleek, glossy plastic, and it has a much higher-end feel than other phones from Alcatel. It features an 8-megapixel rear camera, along with a 720p front-facing camera. Massive 5-inch display features 1280-by-720-pixel resolution, which looks pretty sharp.

Alcatel plans to include a stylus, which may or may not be connected to the Scribe HD's magnetic cover. The magnetic cover functions a lot like Apple's smart cover for the iPad, and easily latches on to the back of the phone. Next up is the One Touch Idol Ultra, which Alcatel claims is the thinnest smartphone yet, at just 0.25-inch thick. For comparison, the original Motorola Droid Razr measures 0.28 inch. The phone features a similar quality plastic construction to the Scribe HD, but features a more sensibly sized 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display. The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and features an 8-megapixel camera. Unfortunately, the thin size of this phone doesn't leave enough space for a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you're stuck with Bluetooth streaming for audio. Alcatel hasn't been able to get this ultra-thin phone approved by the FCC.

Alcatel M'Pop is a cute, tiny phone with a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz processor, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It also comes in a series of bright, fun colors. Though it's unlikely to make any waves among smartphone aficionados, it could be a good, inexpensive choice.
