If you're looking for a phone that stands out from the crowd then this is one candidate. Within the tariff, the texts are aimed at off peak use for evenings and week-ends, granted, but, if you like the look of this style handset then the cost, which offers a basic, up front, line rental, is a bargain.

BREIF REVIEW - ALACATEL MANDARINA DUCK
Look and feel
The cute duck emblem is on the top half of the back of the phone and splendid it looks, too.
There's a camera in the lid of the phone. There is also a music player. There are two Java games on board.
Ease of use
The keys are smooth and flat keys add to the handset's unique styling.
Battery life is as satisfactory.
