    Well so are again betrayed. Last time while announce the OneTouch XL affordable w10m they promised a they'll release a Superphone. Some of us thinking that would be the Idol 4. But where? Their event has passed. Everything passed quit well as expected. But where the promised Superphone? They forgot that? We again betrayed.

    If you're referring to this article (Alcatel OneTouch's Windows 10 Mobile 'superphone' reportedly called the Idol Pro 4 | Windows Central) which cited this article (Alcatel's Idol Pro 4 may be the promised "superphone" - MSPoweruser), then we weren't promised anything. But since it's mentioned as "planned" - not all plans come to realization. It might, but it also might not.

    We really can't hold onto rumors. By now we should have learned from McClaren. In addition, the said reference has been known to rather hastily make conclusions as mentioned in a previous squabble between them and certain editors.

    Especially if you are dealing with anything related to Windows Mobile, you need patience by the bucket load

    Jeez, if you already feel betrayed by a rumor of a phone then I would recommend you to never go and vote during an election.

    Well, it made it through WiFi certification in June and is set to be sold through T-Mobile. If It Doesn't get outed in September, I'll get a Lumia 950 XL. I can only hope Alcatel didnt get cold feet and ditch the phone. Anyone hear any new news? Daniel?

    I'm on record to say the the Amazing World of Gumball is THE best cartoon out right know. The episode where he gets his picture taken like this is epically funny even better is when Richard teaches them to steal candy and Nicole goes crazy in the grocery store.

    It would change the Windows phone for the foreseeable future, if the specs are correct it will change the landscape and put Alcatel in the hearts of all Windows phone fans for a long time.

    Except it may be exclusive to T-MoUS only. Doesn't really help everyone...

    It can be purchased, unlocked, and used on another carrier no? Hopefully its a timed exclusivity period, and if the thing gets released anyway....this waiting is killing me!

    That would be very cool... But all I've ever seen says T-Mo. Do you have a link?

    To the best if my knowledge, the Alcatel Fierce XL never showed up anywhere other than T-Mo...

    These device releases for Windows take eons for some reason.
    In the past whenever I thought an idea may have been decommissioned it pops up.

    It's very tough to get excited about rumored Microsoft enabled mobile devices these days looking back at the tortuous wait times.
    I'll e-mail the Alcatel One touch support people and see if they actually reply.

    I got a reply, and theres no time frame for the release of the Idol 4 yet, they pasted a link to their press release site. Guess I'll get another 950 XL to hold me over till it comes out. As an aside, I've owned iPhones 5 through 6s plus
    Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge etc. and the only phones that will read and dictate texts through my Nissan Rogues GPS
    Bluetooth Bose system is a Windows phone....weird huh. All that power in those other phones and cant do simple
    stuff like the Windows phone can.

    You would think now would be the ideal time to release such a device, in the vacuum of no new Lumia's and partnered with a carrier at a lower price than the HP, though all the hype that device is getting would probably still overshadow any new release, maybe that's why. Or maybe they are seeing the dismal sales of W10M devices and having second thoughts about launching and seeing their investment go down the drain.

    by the time it gets released it will be old specs.... :(
    They wait to long and the MS surface phones will be here in spring filling the void. #hopefully.
    perhaps this is better after all because Id rather have that.

    Its B.S. is what it is. Microsoft has enough clout to get a company like Alcatel to release its Idol Pro 4 if it wanted to but I get the sneaky suspicion it has no inclination it doesnt want to for whatever reason. At this point i'm close to giving up on Windows mobile as a platform. The sinking ship continues to take on water, yet it's services like Xbox and Windows 10 that give me a false sense of hope for WM 10. I dont know.
