T-Mobile is one of the few U.S. carriers that have brought smartphones from smaller brands stateside. They got cozy with ZTE last year, and now it looks like they are getting ready to bring an Alcatel handset to the states with the Alcatel Pop Astro.
More companies are turning to wearables this year, and consumers are starting to get on the bandwagon thanks to devices like the Moto 360 and the upcoming Apple Watch. Alcatel is a company you probably won’t think it when it comes to smartwatches, but they want to change that with the Alcatel OneTouch Watch which has just gone up for pre-order.
There’s been a lot of hype today over the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9, but there are plenty of other smartphones being shown off at MWC 2015. The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is one of them, and it has an interesting feature that ensures you’ll never have to worry about talking into the earpiece.
Alcatel is a brand that’s been around for a while, and while they aren’t that big in the states, they are very popular in other regions. Just like Huawei and other foreign brands, Alcatel is aiming to break into the US market, and today they’ve taken the first step by opening an online shop that sells to US customers.
