While all are paying attentions to Nokia, Samsung, Apple, Sony and HTC shows for Q4 of 2013, Alcatel is quietly came back armed with new devices. After months of success with the once world’s thinnest smartphone– Idol Ultra, the French-based company finally added two new Idols in their One Touch catalogue — Idol S and Idol Mini. I understand that Alcatel wants bit of attentions from crowd too so why they announced new products before others’ September exclusive events and expos. I’m sure everyone is interested especially the Filipinos.
