Alcatel OneTouch Pop Mega LTE

What's this? The device comes with the Pop Mega LTE and is a Bluetooth handset masquerading as an old-school phone so it can take calls in case the phablet is otherwise occupied. Pretty clever-looking gadget, actually.

Alcatel OneTouch Pop Icon

This Wal-Mart exclusive phone runs off Wal-Mart's StraightTalk network. The 854x480 screen resolution's pretty low for a 5-inch phone.
