Alcatel OneTouch Launch Event

Alcatel OneTouch recently hosted a launch and press event at The Drake Hotel in Toronto to showcase some exciting new devices added to their impressive lineup of budget smartphones. Tech professionals and their media counterparts got to mingle, sample the venue’s creative hors d’oeurves, and demo the soon-to-be-released devices.

Our team at Bell was excited to preview the Idol 2 S and experience first-hand some of the new features the LTE smartphone has to offer.  A great device for new users, it offers initial prompts that highlights and explains each aspect of the phone. These built-in tutorials are like having an Alcatel OneTouch product expert by your side as you get your phone set up. We also learned about many of its unique camera features like the easy and convenient built-in QR code reader.

The camera also carries a smile detection feature, where a photo is automatically taken when your subject flashes those pearly whites. (Perfect for the many selfies we took over the course of the evening.)

At Bell, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with the widest range of options to enjoy Canada’s largest network, which is why it was great to be there for the launch of the Idol 2 S (by vang), a device that will allow even more customers to enjoy the mobile lifestyle. The Idol 2 S represents Alcatel OneTouch’s dedication to make LTE smartphones more accessible to a wide range of consumers while rocking a sleek, smart, and stylish design. It’s available at Bell for $0 on a 2 year term (or $299 with no term).
