MetroPCS adds Alcatel One Touch Fierce and Alcatel One Touch Evolve to its lineup
Pre-paid carrier MetroPCS announced today that it was adding a couple of Alcatel Android flavored handsets to its lineup. The pair, the Alcatel One Touch Evolve and the Alcatel One Touch Fierce, already launched for T-Mobile customers last month. T-Mobile, as most of you know, owns MetroPCS. Of the two, the One Touch Fierce is the more interesting device.

The Alcatel One Touch Fierce is priced at $99 for the whole kit and kaboodle. It is equipped with a 4.5 inch screen with resolution of 540 x 960 (qHD) with a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek processor on board. 1GB of RAM is inside and of the 4GB of native storage, 2.4GB is available to the user. Thankfully, there is a 32GB capacity microSD slot on the device. The camera on back is 5MP while a .3MP snapper graces the front of the phone, which is powered by an 1800mAh battery. Android 4.2.2 is installed out of the box.

MetroPCS is touting the Alcatel One Touch Evolve as being the perfect handset for the new smartphone user who is, ahem, evolving from a feature phone user and is priced accordingly at $59. Sporting a 4 inch 480 x 800 resolution panel, this model offers pony power under the hood in the form of a single core 1GHz MediaTek CPU. 512MB of RAM comes with the device, along with 4GB of native storage. A microSD slot in available for users and the only shooter on the phone is the 5MP one on back. Android 4.1 is installed on the unit out of the box.

Both devices will work with MetroPCS' pre-paid unlimited plan that starts at $40 a month.

MPCS needs a full lineup of WP8.1 devices. Everyone deserves a chance to try WP, and see if it fits them.

You can use a T-Mobile Sim in all new MetroPCS GSM phones. You have to purchase the phone and use it for 90 days on MetroPCS. Afterwards, you can call customer service and get it unlocked and use it on another GSM Carrier. MetroPCS is using T-Mobile's Network so there is no sense of using it on T-Mobile unless you like paying more for your service. The Data speeds on the 4GLTE phones on MetroPCS are running between 20 and 30 mbps in our location in Metro Detroit. I'm amazed at how fast they are now.

To bad there both junk especially I dont understand would it have really raised the price on the fierce to simply add auto focus to the camera software! & I read the camera flash is pretty useless too. Those two simple fixes would have it worthwhile.

Ya they are low price but what is strange is they put auto focus on the evolve camera software and left off a flash & then included a flash for the camera on the fierce (which I read is not very bright at all) but they did not include auto focus on the fierce camera. So these are ok if you dont care at all about getting decent photos.
