Forget boring black. The Pop C9 is a smartphone rainbow
LAS VEGAS -- Lovers of lush color and Android affordability should keep an eye on Alcatel's Alcatel One Touch Pop C9 series. The smartphone comes in five different shades and two coatings.
C is for color
The blue-black and red models have matte, soft-touch finishes and full-body color. Meanwhile, the other tones flaunt their flavor on the backs of their white faces.
Camer and specs
More of a budget-focused, midrange phablet bound for markets like South America, the Pop C9 has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that records 1080p HD video.
It's a vibrant device, but seams like this show that the phone, while sturdy, isn't too fussy about sartorial perfection.
I don't need a waifish phone to be happy, and while not the slimmest thing around, the Pop C9 never seemed overly bulky.
