I'm not much of a smartphone expert, so maybe this isn't news to anyone else, but ... 

The Alcatel smartphone mentioned on pic #10 is really from "Alcatel," a company with ties to old-school Alcatel. It's now run by a hong kong outfit that changed its name from T&A (yeah, probably a good move, if they have any dealings in the U.S.)

T&A was the name that came up of "TCL & Alcatel" when alcatel sold / spun-off its mobile division. Originally, it was a joint venture of some sorts, but I don't think ALU has any major stock in there anymore.

Untill very recently, though, ALU employees in europe were still being issued Alcatel branded phones coming from TCL / T&A.
