On the heels of Monday’s announcement, where I shared there are more than 200 million monthly active devices around the world running Windows 10, it’s exciting to see the new devices at CES that are now launching or coming soon. In addition to the fantastic devices, including PCs, 2-in-1s, and mobile phones from our partners Samsung, HP, Lenovo, and Acer, there are a variety of devices building on Windows 10.
A couple of devices unveiled today by ALCATEL ONETOUCH respond directly to the feedback we have received to expand carrier availability of Windows 10 to more phones and tablets.
Earlier this week, ALCATEL ONETOUCH announced their first tablet running Windows 10, the PIXI 3, an 8-inch tablet that features 4G LTE connectivity, enabling full telephony and GPS support. The PIXI 3 will be available in three colors: white, gold and volcano black. It will first be available in Europe and Latin America in April 2016.
In addition, we’re very excited about ALCATEL ONETOUCH’s first Windows 10 phone, the ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce XL.
This new device offers great Windows 10 features like Cortana, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Office Mobile productivity applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and OneDrive. We’re excited about this device because it enables us to offer Windows 10 on a new mobile phone to T-Mobile customers at an affordable price point of $139.99 and through T-Mobile’s phone financing program it’s $0 down ($5.84 for 23 months, $5.67 for 24th month). It will be available exclusively at participating T-Mobile stores nationwide in the coming weeks.
Here are just a few of the great Windows 10 features on the ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce XL:
- Cortana on the Fierce XL: Cortana comes pre-installed on the Fierce XL, providing a personal digital assistant to keep you up-to-date on your schedule, provide driving directions and appointment reminders, help you check the latest weather reports and more.

And Windows 10 Mobile, combined with quad-core processing and a powerful 2500mAh battery, you can be productive out of the office all day.
- Microsoft Edge: Browsing the web is easy with Microsoft Edge on the Fierce XL. You can find content faster with the Microsoft Edge address bar, which includes personalized recommendations to get you to the content you seek.
