Alcatel Pixi 3 series runs Android, Windows or FireFox OS


Alcatel’s latest line of smartphones, the Pixi 3, can do something that no other handset can: run Android, Windows or FireFox OS. Indeed, the new series of devices is available in a variety of display sizes ranging from 3.5-inches to 5-inches. (3.5″, 4″, 4.5″, 5″). The smallest version will be 3G capable while the larger three offer 4G LTE connectivity.

Sadly, the triple-OS not as cool as it sounds on the surface; it’s not a matter of toggling from one OS to another. From the the sounds of it, carriers will be able to choose which OS to flavor the phones.

The full set of specs is not clear yet they are reported to be “affordable”. In other words, look for lesser hardware for these OS-agnostic models.



In addition to the new family of phones, Alcatel will debut the Alcatel WATCH. Reportedly more affordable than the current crop of smartwatches, it’s said to be compatible with Android handsets.

Alcatel is expected to show off the Pixi 3 at CES next week. We’ll be on the ground and will get some images, feedback, and more.
