Alcatel One Touch Idol X

Alcatel kicks of their presence at Mobile World Congress 2013 with an unexpectedly high-end offering, the 1080p One Touch Idol X. Don't let the Nokia style colored cases fool you, this one is all Android and a refreshing step up from what we've seen from Alcatel in the past.

Android Central at Mobile World Congress

Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on a 5-inch LCD, the Idol X has a beautiful edge-to-edge design. Powered by a quad-core MediaTek 6589 CPU with 16GB of internal storage, a 13MP camera (subject to change based on location) and a 2000mAh battery, the One Touch Idol X looks like something we'll want to take a second look at.

No word of pricing or availability dates were supplied.

Only if it comes to the U.S. with the OneTouch name if its not on T-mobile. Unless someone has a patent for the color red......never know anymore.

Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online.(Click Home information)

Mediatec chips seem popular lately. In all new Archos, Lenovo and Alcatel. The battery life isn't that good though.

Wow… this is a really good looking phone, up there with the Nexus 4 and Padfone 2.

So this will be, what, the second? non-Nexus device with 4.2?

A 5 inch 1080p device with only a 2000 mAh battery? Lol. Major FAIL...

Have you ever even seen Droid DNA battery life? It's pretty good, and that's a 2040 mAh battery. You must be another one of those trolls and haters who blindly points "BATTERY FAIL" at any device with a screen size over 4" and a battery under 3000 mAh,

If alcatel listens to the customers that decide to buy their phones, and take what they tell them about their product(especially when there's a problem), instead of telling them there is none, this may sell. I bought a ot960c(sold by radioshack,the alcatel authority), and upon connecting to my pc, said it couldn't find drivers(adb, and usb).Hooked it up to ubuntu, found the usb driver id's. I went to their website, and downloaded their supposed usb drivers, went to install, and found out there were no drivers with the right id's for my alcatel. I had to go to the google drivers, that came with the SDK, and change the id"s to match my phone. I got in touch with alcatel, and they said that I was doing something wrong. Can't be wrong if everythings working now. Not listening to the people, puts a bad taste in people's mouths, and makes no one want to buy another product again.
