It's true that this gallery is somewhat out of time - the 'Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10' has been out for T-Mobile in the USA since November 2016 and available SIM-free in the USA generally for around a month. However, AAWP is based in the UK and we've had no access to this new Windows 10 Mobile flagship... until now. Guest contributor (and ex-pat) Anthony Fear lives in North America and brings us an initial IDOL 4S gallery, ahead of more detailed review coverage.
AAWP Insight #213: the not-so-idle IDOL, and the WOA roadmap
Following on from our first four review parts and various features on the HP Elite X3, we now have the production Lap Dock in house - here's our annotated image gallery of the latter. Of course, there will be a full review along very shortly - after enough time 'on the road'!
