IFA 2013 hasn't even kicked it up to full speed, and we already have a bunch of new products to look forward to, and the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-touting Alcatel One Touch Hero sure is one of them...

nice launch from ALCATEL...for us that dont care about coooores but overall package of features. With 2GB RAM should be OK even there is no SD600/800.

Beauty of Android, so many choices for phone size. I like picking what I feel is right for my phone not being told whats the best screen size for my hand.

Oooh 6 full inches to hold. Come on Samsung, give us 6 and half on that Note 3.
Hey folks, anything is possible, up until today, PhoneArena and everyone else were calling the next big Android release Key Lime Pie!

Let's pray Sammy has pulled a Google, too (and fooled everyone) :)

If samsung manages to keep the overall size of the Note 3 just like the Note 2 and puts a 6" display on it I'll get it. Other then that they can keep the display size at 5.7" to preserve the overall size of the Note 2. I'm looking forward to the release of the Note 3 so I can retire my aging vzw G-Nexus.

Great phone but, needed that MicroSD functionality (back then, opted for the RAZR). Have to admit, though, G-Nexus has a better camera; too bad many were plagued with various issues. Honestly, if they do 6 inches I may not buy it because, for me, the bigger the better and I want it as big as I can get it. I checked out the Samsung Mega at AT&Terrible (I went incognito), I wouldn't mind a 6.3 incher' [ but, that's just me]…

What's with the companion crap-phone madness? I thought this well-established and powerful technology that is the smartphone was supposed to make us carry less crap, not get us concerned about forgetting to charge yet another device.

This is actually a great phone except for the SoC. A snapdragon 600 is a great pair if they cant go with 800.

Nice device but I wonder if they'll be able to keep up with the software updates, Alcatel hasn't been good at that.

Love all the extras. Especially the e-ink from when I'm reading on the go.

The e-ink cover is an excellent idea which I hope others use too.

Impressive! If this phone has Snapdragon 800 on it, it can compete with the big bros out there.
Good job Alcatel!

Now this would be a phablet that I would actually purchase and see me using more than any android device that I have ever had. The magic flip is going to be amazing feature and the e-ink cover would be useful since I like to try and read while at work and at the bar trying to relax.

There are already 6 phones contending to be my new friend and there's this as well. So many choices.
