Entry level Alcatel Onetouch Fire C smartphone has recently been launched in India. The handset is FireFox OS ready and is exclusively available via the online retailer Flipkart. Looks like Flipkart is doing great in holding new phone exclusivity.

The phone is placed third on release rankings next to other two phones Intex Cloud FX and Spice Fire One Mi-FX 1.
The price of the phone seems to target low-range market; it is currently available for Rs. 1,990($32). The price makes the phone the cheapest smartphone leaving behind Intex’s Cloud FX which was launched in August for just Rs. 1,999. The product is listed on Flipkart so that exited people can droll over the page. Flipkart will also let anxious users to sign up for email updates.
The phone specs are good when compared to low-mid range.

The phone lacks the front facing camera but fills the void somewhat by providing Dual-Sim feature. Another drawback is only 2G (EDGE) connectivity is supported by the phone.
