ALCATEL ONETOUCH LAUNCH
The Lifestyle Femmes travelled to Play Bar in Surry Hills to check out the brand new Alcatel ONETOUCH product release.
The event which was set up in the cool metro underground bar not only hosted their latest product roadmap, accessories, connect devices and handsets but a few big buffed up Rabbitoh players! Not what we were expecting per se, but hey, as ‘serious journalists’ if we can inform you about the coolest latest cost effective technology why not bring you some eye candy with it!
Alcatel ONETOUCH have been making waves internationally with a series of exciting announcements at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and Mobile Congress (MWC) and this event marked its big segue into the Australian market for 2015. They have been a long time proud sponsor and supporter of the Rabbitohs for many years and have likened their brand ethos to that of the resilient motivated sports team by saying that they believe in what they do and prepared to take on the big players in the market. But Alcatel is no shrinking violet. They are owned by one of the largest global consumer leaders and manufacturers and uniquely house, design and manufacture all of their products under one roof. ANZ Pacific MD Sam Skontos says that this unique factor is what really gives them an edge in quality control, creativity and innovation. And for team Alcatel, he says, quality is number one.
For those of you who are looking for a different, more colourful and cost effective tech option then Alcatel certainly has plenty of toys for you to choose from. We had the fortune of driving many new gadgets and accessories including an award winning smartwatch boasting luxury design and function for under $200. As a Lifestyle Blogger, I can link this watch up to my camera and actually control photos (including selfies) from afar. Not a bad little trick to have up your sleeve (literally) if you blog on your own.
We also loved the cute and colourful accessories and covers that go perfectly with their new and affordable PIXI 3 Series of smartphones which all start from under $300. This isn’t a bad product to look into if you are starting a small blog or business as using highly technical expensive gear can be a liability if you travel for blogging or work.
You’ll be able to purchase all these fun vibrant accessories soon through leading retailers and electronic retailers. As a Blogger that typically has 3 x separate devices activated at any given time and when all the Femmes are in the office almost triple that! It will be very convenient to tap into the Alcatel Wi-Fi Links that can connect up to 32 devices and are small enough to fit into the back pocket of your One Teaspoon ripped jeans. We love a product that’s fashion friendly….now if they could only put it in our lipsticks…!
The launch showcased their playful, colourful branding that felt very urban and fun. In a small business where costs stack up the Alcatel ONETOUCH range certainly is a fantastic, creative option for any Lifestyle Blogger starting out who’s looking for affordable and functional options. We Femmes were also treated to visual live artwork by a street artist who created this brickwork wall art throughout the event – oh and those Rabbitohs…we were also treated to them as well. Go Team!
FASHION FEMME: WHAT I WORE
In the efforts of going with the whole ‘playful urban’ theme, I wore my best tech checkered shirt from Zara, with a white lace Lover skirt and Diavolina shoes. The bag is Michael Kors and yes, it fit my laptop perfectly!
