Alcatel to launch Windows 10 phone before end of year Chinese OEM Alcatel has announced it will launch a Windows 10 smartphone before the end of the year.
"We are very supportive of the Windows ecosystem," said Alcatel OneTouch SVP Steve Cistulli.

Cistulli's confirmation follows Evan Blass' leak earlier this week about the Alcatel Fierce XL. According to the notorious leaker, the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL with Windows 10 will feature a 5.5-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 210 processor (quad-core at 4 x 1.1GHz), 2GB RAM, dual cameras 8MP/2MP and a 2500mAh battery.

Microsoft has found support for Windows Phone tough to come by since they acquired the handset business of Nokia but the purchase has been one of the biggest flops in the company's history, and that is saying a lot. Microsoft recently wrote off a $7.6 billion loss related to the acquisition.

At 4 percent share of the global markets, Microsoft needs all the help it can get before it unveils its highly anticipated flagship "Cityman" and "Talkman" phones before the end of the year.
