      it’s widely sold on aliex, everything except e-ink covers i saw there.
      i bet it will be updated too.

      i would prefer if they would make a new idolx a bit thicker, but with bigger battery. for now the idol lasts about 14 hours for me, it’s a bit uncomfortable that sometimes it fails on me before i reach home.

    I wish they’d sooner announce an 8-core variant of the Worldwide version of TCL N3 (a.k.a. Alcatel One Touch Hero), as that’s gonna be my phone in a few months – wouldn’t mind 2.0GHz on that for an extra 100$!
