Alcatel One Touch View Video: Meet Ricky he’s a graphic designer
We reported a few days ago on Alcatel’s entry into the Windows Phone space with their One Touch View smartphone. The budget friendly device will have a four inch display with front and rear facing cameras.
The handset will run the last version of the Windows Phone operating system, 7.5 and provide a solid spec for a very reasonable price but how will it be marketed? Today we see a video where Ricky tells us of his hopes and dreams. Step inside..
The video takes a fairly standard approach to the concept of selling Windows Phone as an OS, explaining a little of the live tiles and showing off the dynamic transitions. The video is really winning in places, we especially like hearing about Ricky and hes awesome bro and how he loves his job as a graphic designer. He looks stoked. But the message is clear, get a more personal view of your world with Windows Phone and the new Alcatel One Touch View.

We’re really rooting for Ricky, we hope he finds his way to becoming a famous artist and gets to travel the world. The promo video is odd in that it doesn’t show much of the phone itself until the end or demo how it actually works. It does show off those nice colour schemes though at the end and the device does look rather nice.

"This is the world's worst smartphone ad ever. I was mortified when I realised it was Windows Phone related"
At least they eventually showed the phone in the ad though.
