Alcatel Xess all-in-one launch date set for April 22

Alcatel Xess all-in-one launch date set for April 22

At CES early this year, nay even as far back as IFA 2015 last September, Alcatel revealed a rather bold new device that, frankly, still doesn't have an established, let alone widely embraced, category. The Alcatel Xess is practically an all-in-one computer amalgamated with a gigantic Android tablet designed for the kitchen and family enjoyment on the side. Calling it both a kitchen hub and a family entertainment device, Alcatel will be launching the Xess in North America starting 22nd April for the price of $499.

Alcatel Xess “tablet” to run multitasking Android flavor Phoenix OS

Alcatel Xess “tablet” to run multitasking Android flavor Phoenix OS

Google designed the Pixel C hardware for productivity, but the Android software running on it didn't seem to get the memo. Excellent for smartphones, tablets, and even TVs, "vanilla" Android has not scaled well to PC-like use cases. Companies like Jide, not to mention some crowdfunded projects, have dared to go where Google still refuses to venture. One such attempt is Phoenix OS, which, like Remix OS, spins Android into a more traditional desktop form. Now, it seems that Phoenix has gained a major backer, with Alcatel showing off the OS running on its equally odd Xess "tablet".

Alcatel Idol 4S hands-on: aiming even higher

This week we're taking a look at the successor to one of the finest (and most surprisingly fine) budget smartphones of last year. This is the Alcatel Idol 4S. This device keeps its 5.5-inches screen from last year with the Idol 3, but this time (with the 4S) we're working with a full 2K resolution instead of just 1080p. This device employs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 and 3GB of RAM as well as 32GB of internal storage - there's a microSD card slot here as well, of course.

MWC 2016 is fast approaching, so naturally OEMs are trying to get in the last pieces of their wares. Or trying hard not to let the public see yet. Of course, with all the leaks and tips going on, that's nigh impossible to accomplish. Even Alcatel isn't exempt from that malady. In fact, it may have just been hit hard the most, with its entire lineup having practically been revealed. That said, it does bear one new interesting tidbit, that Alcatel's new OneTouch Idol 4S will come in a plastic box that will double as a VR headset.
