Start64!Alcatel OneTouch raised a few eyebrows this week, as its chief marketing officer and vice president, Dan Dery, said that it plans to launch tablet-sized devices running the Windows Phone OS, including a 10-inch slate with a 'Smart Flip' cover.

The company launched a Windows Phone 7.8 handset at the end of 2012, but then veered away from the platform to focus exclusively on Android instead. But now Alcatel has joined a growing number of companies who are repurposing Android devices to launch them as Windows Phones.
