T-Mobile (US) Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 Mobile gets detailed in new training guide

Earlier this week Zac Bowden and I made our predictions about next week in New York City at Microsoft's event. One of the 'maybes' was the announcement of the Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 Mobile.

It looks like we may be right as the training guide for T-Mobile employees has landed in our lap signaling an imminent launch. While we do not have a firm launch date, we can at least share with you some more details.

You'll notice in a few of the training slides that VR goggles are included. In fact, the VR goggles are the packaging for the IDOL 4S, which is interesting.

The good news here is that T-Mobile US should finally have a powerhouse of a phone for Windows 10 Mobile fans. Hopefully, we'll get out hands on it soon to give it a full review. No word if an unbranded version will be available for the rest of the world.
