Alcatel, one of the longest running global mobile brands, is celebrating their 20th anniversary in the market this year. And what better way to celebrate their anniversary than to flaunt their latest devices in the Philippines!

Previously announced in CES 2013, the Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD, One Touch Idol, and One Touch Idol Ultra, are all now officially available in the Philippines. These devices all sport fantasic displays, multi-core processors, and fantastic cameras. More information after the jump.

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra

The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is one of the world's thinnest mobile devices. It's apparently also a hot item today since it appeared in the movie Iron Man 3.

Alcatel One Touch Scribe HD

The Scribe HD is Alcatel's answer to the current market's phablets. Personally for me it's their answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note II (it has S Note-ish features, sans the built-in S Pen), and cheaper too. It's also the company's only quad-core device that appeared in this launch.

Other devices launched in the event include the One Touch Scribe Easy, the Glory 2, the Inspire 2, the Sapphire 2, and the One Touch Tab 7 HD.

With everything that we saw in this event considered, Alcatel is definitely doing things right: They're producing quality devices at very competitive prices (their most  expensive device is hovering at the P15k mark; other local brands with the same specs but with lower build quality more or less sport the same price) and has promised to consistently keep their products' quality.
