Alcatel Onetouch brings direct, unlocked sales to the US

Over the past few days, we’ve talked about lots of new mobile hardware that premiered at CES 2015, from flagship smartphones to interesting little accessories. That spread’s included more than a few models from Alcatel Onetouch, such as the Pixi 3, a hardware platform that will be available configured in your choice of three different mobile operating systems, as well as a very affordable circular-screened smartwatch (above). But we’d forgive you for thinking “Alcatel Onetouch? Where the heck do I find one of those?” Well, depending on your carrier, you may already have a few options to check out, but now the floodgates are really about to open. If you’re a shopper in the US, Alcatel Onetouch has just made it much easier to get your hands on its gear, launching a new online storefront.

Starting today, Alcatel Onetouch is opening direct sales of its accessories and unlocked smartphones to the US public. Consumers in Europe have already had access to the company’s offerings, and this is the start of a new push into North America. Following these US sales, Canada will see its own get underway as Alcatel Onetouch brings its web store north later this quarter.

With a number of affordable models in the sub-$300 space, this could prove to be a nice new resource for budget-conscious phone shoppers, especially those wanting a new model to use on a pre-paid (or otherwise no-contract) plan. Hit up the source link below to start browsing the selection.
