Alcatel announced a handful of new products this week at CES ranging from a new smartwatch to smartphones and tablets, but until now there’s been no easy way to get your hands on those gadgets in America. Now, the company has a solution with a new online store where you can order its devices unlocked.

The new website launched on Thursday in the U.S., while a Canadian version is coming in the near future along with European stores later this year. The payment side of things is powered by Amazon, which should make for a pretty seamless shopping experience.

To start, the company is offering two of its Idol-branded smartphones. For $275 you can grab the Idol X+ unlocked for $275, which packs a 5-inch 1080p display, a 2.0GHz MediaTek processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel camera up front, a 2500mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD support and runs Android 4.4 KitKat. If you’re looking for an even better deal, the Idol 2 S costs $198 and comes equipped with a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, a 2150mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Alcatel’s also offering its mid-range Pop 8 and Pop 7 tablets for $199 and $149 off-contract, respectively. Unfortunately, you still can’t buy the latest Pop 10 tablet, which runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. The company’s new Watch, which uses its own proprietary software and costs just $149, isn’t available yet either.
