. PIXI 4 series: Offers a comprehensive and reliable user experience at an affordable price.
. PLUS 10: The brand’s first connected 2-in-1 Windows device for unbeatable productivity on the move.
“Millennials want to have fun, but they also want those experiences to be simple, meaningful and authentic,” said Dan Dery, Chief Marketing Officer at Alcatel. “Because both quality and price are important to millennials, we feel that Alcatel – with our DNA of making innovation accessible to everyone – is uniquely in tune with their needs.”
