The e-ink 'E-card' option is a mini e-reader tied to your smartphone. You can instantly share screenshots with the card, for quick access to fixed ideas like shopping lists or boarding passes where they can remain on screen for handy access. It can also act as an e-book reader.

Alcatel OneTouch also offers more standard Flip covers, with these two familiar styles. The open-window model gives easy access to info on screen, while the other model uses a pixel interface to display information like the screen popularised by the HTC One M8.
