Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 tablet arrives at MetroPCS

MetroPCS users have gotten a new prepaid tablet option, with T-Mobile announcing that the budget-range Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 slate has arrived at its prepaid stores.

Want a tablet from Boost or Cricket? They've got nothing."

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ and BOOMBand wearable hands-on: Gunning for Moto G

Alcatel has some big ambitions in the midrange, and it's counting on the OneTouch Idol X+ to bludgeon its way through the market. Revealed at CES 2014 - alongside a Bluetooth 4.0 wearable - the new OneTouch delivers specifications more akin to some company's flagships, like a 5-inch Full HD display, 13-megapixel camera, and "true octacore" processor courtesy of MediaTek, but with a price that Alcatel says will come in under the $350 mark unsubsidized. This isn't just frugality for its own sake, either.
