ALCATEL ONETOUCH introduces the POP 2 family at IFA Berlin – and when I say ‘family,’ I mean a family of three devices…there are two different sizes of smartphones and one tablet.  The POP 2 family entry-level LTE smartphones are one of the first to commercialize Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The POP 2 family comes with five colorful covers in the box with each phone allowing you to change your color for whatever your current mood or simply to make a statement. Dan Dery, Chief Marketing Officer for ALCATEL ONETOUCH says:

“Our POP series makes the smartphone experience fun, easy and available to everyone/  These devices offer a choice for every need, whether that’s streaming, browsing or creating content on the go.  The POP 2 family is a proud continuation of this tradition.”

With the ONETOUCH POP 2, grab one of six colors – white, yellow, red, blue, green or purple.  With the Snapdragon 410 and 4G LTE connectivity or Wi-Fi you can fly through the internet, playing games, watching videos, multitasking and more. With advanced features like download booster that uses both the 4G LTE and Wi-Fi as the same time, giving you unparalleled downloading speeds.  Whatever you decide to do with you POP 2 smartphone, you can enjoy them on either a 4-5-inch display or 5-inch display model…talk about options – get the model that best suits your needs and budget.

The POP 2 also offers features such as one-finger zoom, an unusual option called a mini-apps application that allows you to use applications on the phone without having to launch them.  The POP 2 will read Quick Response (QR) codes using a camera function, and what they call, Wi-Fi display that allows user to send images from the smartphone to a larger TV or monitor display.  ALCATEL ONETOUCH offers the POP 2 in a premium edition as well with “sleeker premium materials.”

The POP 2 family also includes an 8-inch tablet called the POP 8S – slim and light and with 4G LTE it is a great device for streaming music, watching TV or browsing the web.  It is only 7.9mm thin and only weighs in at 309 grams, so it is idea to carry around – perfect for kids’ backpack or Mom’s handbag.  Its quad-core processor gives it the power to speed its way through games, streaming videos or multitasking.  It has a 5MP main camera in the EU countries and a 3MP camera for Latin America and the U.S. markets.

ALCATEL ONETOUCH is really pulling out all of the stops at IFA with competitive products at budget prices…they have not only launched the POP 2 family, but yesterday announced their Hero 2 high-end smartphone with a stylus and their Hero 8 tablet.
