First Windows 10 phone on T-Mobile, the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL, could be launched this week
T-Mobile is reportedly getting ready to launch its very first Windows 10 smartphone: the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL (initially announced in January at CES 2016).

According to Windows Central, T-Mobile should start selling the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL this Wednesday, on February 10. The phone's price is expected to be of $139 (no contract required), so you've probably already guessed that we're not talking about a high-end device here.

The OneTouch Fierce XL sports a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels and 267 ppi - certainly not the sharpest 5.5-inch screen around. The handset is powered by a quad-core 1.1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor - a low-end chipset, but Windows 10 should still provide a decent user experience on the device, especially since there's also 2 GB of RAM on board. Other notable features include LTE, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2500 mAh battery. Our Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL hands-on will let you know more about the new smartphone.

The Windows 10-based Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL is named just like the Android-based OneTouch Fierce XL that MetroPCS released in November. The two phones also share most of their specs and features (minus their OSes, of course).

In case you're wondering, at the moment, T-Mobile doesn't sell new Windows handsets at all, but you can buy a certified pre-owned Microsoft Lumia 435 (which runs Windows Phone 8.1) for $49.99. Or maybe you'll go for the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL?
