Alcatel opens virtual Amazon shopfront for its high quality affordable smartphones


Alcatel has opened a dedicated Amazon virtual shopfront to make it even easier and faster for Australians to get their hands on the company’s affordable and feature-packed new range of smartphones.

The Alcatel smartphones are all sub $200 and available now through Amazon.
These include the Alcatel 3 ($139), the Alcatel 1X ($109) and the Alcatel 1S ($199).

“Affordable technology is arguably more important now than ever before, as we are all watching our dollars and needing them to stretch as far as possible,” says Alcatel Mobile regional managing director Sam Skontos.

“Today’s announcement of an official local shopfront on Amazon Australia ensures we give consumers the choice of some fantastic sub-$200 options as they consider an online purchase, perhaps for the first time.

“I have spoken for a long time about the importance of investing in brands that in-turn invest locally in staff, customer support and community activity, and consumers can have peace of mind that they will be well supported. Alcatel is a brand they can trust, that I have personally led in Australia for over a decade now.


“It is equally important that I reinforce the importance of purchasing through an official, Australian site, be it Alcatel or any other brand in the technology space.

“This is always important as it is in everyone’s interests to ensure only products that meet Australia’s stringent local safety standards make it into Australia. But it is even more important now as we seek to support Australian companies and jobs.”
