In need of a good way to start your hump day off right? I bet some shiny new phones would help. Good thing that that's precisely what Alcatel One Touch and T-Mobile have for us this morning.
The two companies have taken the wraps off of the One Touch Evolve and One Touch Fierce, two new Android-powered handsets that'll land in select national retail stores starting on Oct. 5. The One Touch Evolve will then be available from T-Mobile shops on Oct. 16. Meanwhile, the One Touch Fierce will be sold by T-Mobile beginning Oct. 23. Pricing for the One Touch Evolve will be set at $27.99 plus 24 monthly payments of $3, and the One Touch Fierce's price tag will show a down payment of $19.99 down with 24 payments of $6 each.
