Say whatever you want about Windows 10 Mobile, but the folks over at T-Mobile reckon there's still a demand for this relatively niche player, which is why it's partnered with Alcatel OneTouch to deliver something "affordably priced" to begin with. In fact, if you recall the $139 Android-powered Fierce XL from a couple of months ago, it's basically that but running on Windows 10 with all the Office and Cortana goodies; and oddly enough, it's keeping the same name. Spec-wise, you still get a 5.5-inch 720p display, Qualcomm's quad-core 1.1GHz Snapdragon 210 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD expansion of up to 32GB, a 2,500 mAh battery, Cat 4 LTE and VoLTE. As for cameras, it's 8 megapixels on the back and 2 megapixels on the front. There's no word on the actual pricing just yet, but this new Fierce XL will be hitting T-Mobile stores in the coming weeks.

Update: A T-Mobile rep has confirmed that the phone will be available for $139.99 in one payment, or $0 downpayment and less than $6 per month.
