Alcatel OT-707 and OT-800 leave us longing for Legos

We never thought we’d see the day when a pair of phones would actually make the Lego Phone we scooped seem interesting, but that day is upon us. Behold the Alcatel OT-707 and OT-800, a pair of entry-level handsets that will do little to up Alcatel’s street cred. Touting design cues from the late 80s and specs from the late 90s (ok fine, 2002ish), this dynamic duo from Alcatel-Lucent won’t be turning any heads — in a good way at least. These handsets have their place in the entry-level market however, though even entry-level phones are typically a bit better endowed than the OT-707 and OT-800 these days. As always however, money talks and these handsets are set to retail at €95 ($120) and €100 ($126) respectively so they’ll surely find a few good homes somewhere. Hit the jump for some more pics and specs.
