    I'm really curious to see if this is priced higher than the Android version that ships in the VR box.
    I would guess it has to be more... The Pro is getting much more under the hood.

    That being said: I'm tempted by the Cricket Idol 4 with VR. Great price. Nice little phone with solid reviews.

    The Idol 4S reviews are usually good.
    Nice looking phone too.

    If it ships with VR should it also be a 1440p like the 4s?

    I've not seen any rumors on the Idol 4 Pro in a while, but I think it is almost assured it will have the same display as the Idol 4S.

    • AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
    • 5.5 inches (~71.9% screen-to-body ratio)
    • 1440 x 2560 pixels (~534 ppi pixel density)

    At this point its vaporware. I've all but given up on anything MS with the exception of Xbox. With the push to create first class apps for iOS and Android, that leaves a bad taste in my mouth so I went and ordered an iPhone 7 plus. So much for a first class OS with first class hardware with a first class ecosystem. I dont think we'll ever see it, add to that HP's botched roll-out and update of the Elite X3, that leaves Alcatel to literally "save" whats left of Windows Mobile or at least whats left of the smoking ashes. MS gave it a decent if not half hearted try.

    I'm not sure that a T-Mo exclusive can save anything.

    However, it seems weird to me that users are now looking for that ONE DEVICE that is gonna be "magic." I want to see more players and more diversity. I'm not looking for a panacea device. I hope that the small trickle we have now turns into a steady stream. That will save the platform better than any one device, IMHO.

    And I still believe this will turn up. I won't go for it because I'm not on T-Mo, but if they offered a Factory Unlocked version I would seriously look at it. This isn't aimed at the same audience as the Elite X3. The Idol 4 Pro would be more likely to steal audience from the Acer Liquid Jade Primo (which is out and is Unlocked).

    I refuse to put all my eggs in one basket.

    Everything I've seen about this phone says it will be a T-Mo follow up to the Fierce XL. *shrug*

    The wait for this phone is not so bad anymore. Just got 14936.1000 on the Fierce today and so far so good. The camera is actually useable now.

    If Microsoft is helping smooth camera on 3rd party OEMs, that is good news indeed. Thanks for that "clue" my friend.

    I agree. But I hope we can see this smartphone in a International version. Are those rumours true?

    Cheers

    Yep! Next couple of weeks maybe. I sure hope they do not keep it locked on T-Mobile.

    Even if it comes to T-Mobile I think I will wait for a while. Just got a great deal on the 950 with the dock thrown in.

    It won't be long now that T-Mobile has started training their sales reps on the phone. I used to be a store manager for T-Mobile. We have to be just a few weeks away.

    As a TMO customer who enjoys things like Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE, this looks like my only high end option for a while.

    I do believe we have a heads up on the price now with the release of the DTEK60, its sister Android device. And I believe its going to be in the ball range of 500 in the USD. The same as the latest low volume, similarly high specced, BB android phone.:) Especially considering the similar/equal volumes that it will be moving with the WM10 variant. That, and the add-ons to the device itself too. And the ecosystem/accessories they will have to build around this variant. And if the BB DTEK60 is any indicator, it might even just have a QHD or a 2K screen, though take that with a mouthful of salt. Just dont wretch! :/ Its just that the economies of scale dictate it cheaper to manufacture the model with the QHD if they're manufacturing two of the same model of variants - counter intuitive though it may sound/seem. Retool or Tooling separate assembly lines for such a minor change, an undertaking, just doesnt make sense at these small margins of cost here to me. Or maybe I just like being optimistic. But anyways, we'll know. If its coming, and at what point, or if its vaporware, come the morrow anyways. No point in speculating anymore. :) ^_^

    They got rid of the Fierce XL from their line-up as of today.
    This is going to be its replacement and T-Mobile's only Win10m option for the time being, it looks like.

    I hope not.
    High dollar devices may not be conducive as far as helping MS stop the slide.
    This phone needs to come in with incentives and not be bound to T-Mobile to see any sales.

    500 bucks and being locked to crappy T-Mobile isn't good.
    When I bought my overpriced Fierce from T-Mobile they looked at me funny.
    They looked at me funnier when I went to them for warranty help on phone #3.

    Alcatel CS was good on my warranty deal however.
    Good service from them as a phone maker.

    Seems to be a T-Mo thing... Only one Windows Phone at a time and phase them out quick.

    IMHO, Alcatel chose the wrong carrier to partner with on this W10M venture. ATT/Cricket would have served them better more likely. C'est la vie.
