Alcatel's Cyanogen-running Hero 2+ phablet has officially been scrapped
A joint statement from Alcatel's Steve Cistulli and Cyanogen's Vikram Natarajan suggests that while the Hero 2+ is not going to reach fruiton, this isn't the end of the relationship between the two firms, and that we can expect more great hardware collaborations in the future:
The fact that both companies remain focused on delivering new products down the line is definitely encouraging, despite the lack of a release that had bags of potential. At $299, it may have been a hit with fans of the popular Cyanogen OS, but after such a lengthy delay, it wasn't to be.
Still, if you're a fan of its design and features, the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 is still about, and as you'll see in our review, is bundled with plenty of goodies.
