So that's why TCL Communication chose to launch its newest bunch of devices on the opening day of Iron Man 3; one of the newly outed Alcatel smartphones in the Philippines was in the company of Tony Stark and friends. Where were we when news of the partnership came out? Must be asleep.
However, the maker of Alcatel devices seems to be as wide awake as a person who just downed five cups of black coffee, judging by the number of models due to hit stores nationwide. Don't fret, though; we're here to keep you up to speed with what's coming next.
Say hello to Alcatel's seven smartphones and one tablet (the gallery below details the gadgets' prices and specs), all of which are kind to your wallet.
If we were professors playing favorites, the Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra and Scribe HD would be the teacher's pets now.
Watch the Idol Ultra in action.
Now meet the quad-core Scribe HD.
