Alcatel OneTouch announced a broad portfolio refresh at CES 2016 last week, which included Windows 10 devices as well as a number of other products.
Set to be available exclusively from T-Mobile US, the company’s first Windows 10 smartphone is called Fierce XL. It is described as “affordably priced” (Microsoft said $139.99), but comes with support for Microsoft’s productivity applications, as well as having the Cortana voice assistant onboard.
Other features include a 5.5-inch HD (720 pixel) screen, 1.1GHz quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8MP main and 2MP front cameras, and LTE support.
This is not the company’s sole Windows 10 device: also unveiled was the Pixi 3 (8) tablet. Set for availability in Europe and Latin America, the 8-inch screen device also includes integrated LTE connectivity.
An Android 5.0-version is also available.
In a statement, it said that the line “offers premium entry-level smartphones and tablets with a comprehensive user experience in design, audio, camera and battery life”.
Among the features are Polaroid imaging software and Arkamys optimised speakers.
The line comprises 3.5-inch and 4-inch smartphones, 6-inch phablet and 7-inch tablet. Specifications vary across the line.
Said to be “among the slimmest models in the entry-level segment”, Pixi 4 also “comes in a rainbow of colours, from cool, metallic silver to eye-popping, candy-coloured brights”.
Finally, Alcatel OneTouch unveiled its CareTime children’s watch. A GPS tracking device, parents can also call or send voice messages to children, and calls can be made to pre-set contacts.
