How do you improve on the phone we described as "one of the cheesiest Android devices we've ever handled"? If you're Alcatel, you switch from a sliding to candybar form factor, ditch the large, candy-colored buttons and add a touchscreen. That about sums up the OT-915, a budget handset that's slated to make its official debut at Mobile World Congress later this month, but whose existence Electricpig claims to have confirmed weeks in advance. That press shot up there, if accurate, speaks for itself: what we have here is a full QWERTY device whose button layout and style borders on BlackBerry KIRF. Other specs include a 2.8-inch, 240 x 320 touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera, WiFI, FM radio, 11.9mm-thick profile and Android 2.3 as an OS. Electricpig, based in the UK, reports the phone is headed to Blighty at some unspecified date, though it's unclear what other (typically non-US) markets it'll reach. For now, we leave you with that one photo up there, but you know if we see this thing on the show floor at Barcelona we'll hit you back with more details and the requisite hands-on treatment.
