Alcaltel Onetouch revamping its Pixi 4 line at CES

We're still a couple days away from the onslaught that is CES, but it's never too soon to tease the news. And that's exactly what Alcatel Onetouch is doing with its affordable Pixi 4 line.

CES 2016

The range includes four devices — smartphones that come in at 3.5 inches, 4 inches and 6 inches, plus a 7-inch tablet. They're considered to be "premium entry-level devices offering a comprehensive user experience in design, audio, camera and battery life," Alcatel says.

In addition, Alcatel announced an accompanying smartwatch for children that also serves as a GPS tracker. So parents can call or send messages to their kids, the kids can reply or make calls to pre-determined contacts — and best of all Mom and Dad can keep track of where their youngsters are. There's also some geofencing involved, so parents can be notified whenever the kids leave a specific area. It'll first be available in Europe and Latin America.

Stay tuned for more on this and everything else going on at CES in Las Vegas.

Android users are lusting most after the Nexus 6P, Note 5, and Priv

Pile 'o phones

When it comes to buying a new phone, we have a tendency to stick close to home.

In our first look at the purchase interest and intent of the Mobile Nations' communities, we tapped into the level of demand for tablets, watches, and TV boxes being offered by the biggest smartphone providers. But the smartphone itself remains the primary digital device for many, and plenty of companies have debuted offerings in the past few months that vied to become holiday purchases — or at least a last-minute buy before the calendar flips over.

So late last month, we asked over 5,700 readers of Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore and Windows Central to share their thoughts on what could be taking their calls. Even the smartphones that garnered the most interest didn't muster the same amount of attention as some of the hot (and newer) non-smartphone products like as Android Wear, Apple TV and the Surface Book.

The LG V10 is the newer, better iPod

300

If you love music, you'll love the LG V10.

When we talk about smartphones, we focus on things like processors and screens and RAM and software. That's all fine and dandy, because those are important things to talk about when you're looking for the best phone-slash-pocket-computer you can buy. We all want the best.

But I'm going to totally ignore all of that and tell you, right now, that the LG V10 is the audio player you're looking for — even if you never put a SIM card in it.
