Alcatel One Touch Pop 7 out at T-Mobile on June 18, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is cheaper

T-Mobile is doing a couple of things to its tablet roster, which will supposedly make the thought of purchasing a tablet from a carrier more palatable to people. First off, the magenta carrier is announcing a $100 price cut for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. This goes in effect today, but will only be valid until June 15. This means you can now get the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition for $0 down followed by 24 monthly...

Alcatel One Touch Pixi 7 is a very low-end tablet with a €79 price tag

TCL, the Chinese company that operates the Alcatel brand in the mobile world, has just unveiled a new tablet – the One Touch Pixi 7. This is as low-end as they can possibly get in this day and age, and as such its main claim to fame has to be the pricing. As you might have gathered from its name, the Alcatel Pixi 7 is a 7-inch tablet, but one that comes with the eye scratching resolution of 540×960 – that’s the...

5″ 1080p 2 GHz octa-core Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ gets official alongside Pop C9, Pop 7, Pop 8

If you don’t live in China yet wanted to be able to buy the octa-core TCL Idol X+ that was announced late last month, here’s some good news for you. Just as we anticipated, TCL will be offering the same handset internationally under the Alcatel brand. Today, it announced the Alcatel One Touch Idol X+, which, for all intents and purposes is the TCL Idol X+, just with different branding. In case you forgot, here’s a...

TCL Idol X+ revealed in China with 2 GHz octa-core CPU, $329 price, may be Alcatel-branded elsewhere

TCL, the Chinese company that’s best known elsewhere for the Alcatel branded smartphones it makes, has announced its new flagship device. It’s called TCL Idol X+, and there’s a big chance we’ll soon see it outside of China as the Alcatel One Touch Idol X+. It is the successor to the Idol X that was unveiled in February. Its existence has been rumored since August, and about a month ago we found out that it...

TCL’s Alcatel Idol X+ to be announced alongside a smartwatch and a smart bracelet?

TCL, the Chinese company that makes Alcatel smartphones and tablets, is getting ready to launch a handset powered by MediaTek’s new eight-core MT6592 processor. Apparently called Alcatel Idol X+, the new smartphone will be released as the successor to the Alcatel Idol X unveiled at the beginning of 2013. Chinese website MTKSJ seemingly has a teaser image for the upcoming Idol X+ announcement. The image reads “1 + 1 > 2?”, showing a...

Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve now on offer at MetroPCS

After having been launched by T-Mobile a while back, two Alcatel devices are now available at MetroPCS. This obviously makes sense since T-Mobile owns MetroPCS. The Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve are interestingly cheaper at MetroPCS than at T-Mobile. The Fierce retails for $99 and the Evolve is offered for $59. These prices are without any long-term contract, so you can see how these handsets may sell rather well. You...

T-Mobile Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve announced

Two Alcatel-branded Android-powered smartphones are coming to T-Mobile next month. The Alcatel One Touch Fierce is the higher-end of the two (yet it’s still nothing more than a midranger), while the Evolve is an entry-level offering. The Alcatel One Touch Fierce comes with a 4.5-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a VGA front camera, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, HSPA support, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of...

TCL N3 shows up again, this time officially. Has 6″ 1080p screen, 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU, small bezels

The TCL N3 is once again the star in a carefully crafted render, yet this time it’s an official promotional image from the Chinese company. The first (and, so far, the only time) we’ve heard about the N3, it was little more than a rumor – a large-screened phablet perhaps coming as a successor of sorts to the Alcatel One Touch Idol X announced in February (don’t forget that the China-based TCL owns the Alcatel...

Alcatel One Touch Idol X successor already in the works with 5.7″ screen, almost no bezels

The Alcatel One Touch Idol X was announced in February as TCL’s flagship smartphone for places other than China (where the company sells phones under its own brand). Yet TCL already has a successor for this device in the works, it seems. The handset that will replace the Idol X is called TCL N3 (and will probably be named Alcatel One Touch N3 outside of China), and it will feature a truly outstanding almost bezel-less design, as...

Alcatel One Touch Scribe Pro leaks, will have 6″ screen, quad-core CPU, 13 MP camera, stylus

Alcatel seems to be in “throw dozens of phones at the wall and see what sticks” mode this year. The brand has so far announced at least 15 devices in 2013, and apparently it has no plans of slowing down. TCL (the Chinese company behind the Alcatel name) sure loves brands. The Alcatel phones all feature the One Touch brand, and aside from that we’ve seen two different series of devices – those branded Idol, and...
