About Alcatel Pixi
Alcatel Mobile Phones
Alcatel Mobile Phones is collaboration between two firms, i.e. Alcatel-Lucent of France and TCL Communication from China. The company was formed in 2004, only for the French major to pull out a year later. TCL has primarily been responsible for the mobile business for all of the years, mainly manufacturing mobile phones and tablet computers. Alcatel, as of January 2016, has been acquired by Nokia Corporation.
History of Alcatel Mobile Phones
Alcatel-Lucent was a telecom company that was formed in 2006, by the merger of Alcatel and Lucent Technologies. However, by then Alcatel had collaborated and then pulled out of the joint venture with TCL Communication in the two years prior to 2006. Licensing still allows TCL to sell phones with the Alcatel branding, although the latter has completely pulled out of the mobile phone business.
TCL Communication largely manufactured feature phones, which have given way to smartphones and tablet computers at present. The company releases products with the Alcatel One Touch branding. At present, it manufactures both Android and Windows devices. A few Firefox OS devices have been released as well. The phones come in various lineups such as Pop, Idol, Hero, Pixi and Fire.
Popularity in India
Alcatel was one of the earliest companies to arrive in India. However, this has mostly to do with telecommunication equipment business rather than mobile devices. While the company did introduce its devices in the country, there were pretty scantily available.
At present, the company’s smartphones range can be found in many online shopping platforms and some retailers. Although the company prices its phones affordably, a lack of proper marketing hasn’t paid off well for Alcatel’s prospects in India. Service centers are also something that is pretty rare to find.
