Although already available as an Android variant, Windows powered Idol 4S, will be available exclusively through T-Mobile starting Nov. 10.
Priced for $469, which is about $19.50/month, Alcatel Idol 4S is Microsoft’s other attempt to bring its Windows mobile platform to the forefront.
Windows 10 Continuum & Virtual Reality
Alcatel Idol 4S serves Microsoft’s ambition of showcasing a high-end phone running the Windows 10 Mobile OS. It supports virtual reality with a VR headset included with the device. It is also the first Windows phone to support VR.
With Windows 10 mobile OS, users, who do work on their handsets while on the go, can easily move that work at their destination to a compatible computer by using the Microsoft Continuum feature.
The Continuum feature essentially allows converting the smartphone to a PC. This is done by connecting the device to a full size keyboard, mouse and monitor. Users will also have access to Microsoft Office apps and regular software updates directly from Microsoft.
