Alcatel OneTouch is a brand that’s begun to make a name for itself, at least outside of the U.S. That changes today with the company’s announcement that it has now begun selling unlocked devices in the states via its U.S. website. The site includes unlocked phones, tablets and accessories made by Alcatel OneTouch. The current selection isn’t enormous, but it’s a good amount for the start of the site.

The two phones currently available are the Idol X+ and the Idol 2 S, both of which aim to provide decent specs at a low price. Tablets available include the Pop 7 and Pop 8, which are budget tablets intended for those looking to save some money. The accessories available include everything from cases to NFC tags to Bluetooth headsets, with plenty of options.
