Alcatel-Lucent is best known for its technological breakthroughs. That’s why it’s a bit of a surprise for many that the company has released a low-cost, low-tech ‘Union Jack’ phone to commemorate Prince William and Catherine (Kate) Middleton’s upcoming nuptials.
The phone is a basic Alcatel One Touch device emblazoned with the Union Jack.
On the back of the device are the initials C and W in gold lettering and the date 29-4-11 on a red background.
The home screen comes with wallpaper of the happy couple and the ringtone is Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.
The Alcatel Wedding phone isn’t the only piece of technological paraphernalia to appear in recent weeks. Following suggestions from Facebook users, GE has produced a William and Kate commemorative fridge (below).
