Alcatel is taking the bull by the horns in pursuing an OS-agnostic approach to smartphones. The company is introducing a smartphone that offers consumers the choice of three operating systems.
Alcatel Pixi 3 – 3 sizes; 3 platforms
Alcatel Pixi 3 is actually a range of one model with different display sizes – 3.5 (3G model), 4, 4.5, and 5 inches. The bigger three devices offer 4G LTE and will also be available with choices of Firefox OS, Windows OS or Android OS, giving consumers the choices that they deserve. Just pick a model and the OS of your choice.
Alcatel already manufactures different smartphones running the three different mobile OSes. However, the Pixi 3 is their first effort at offering consumers the choice of picking what OS they want on a specific unified hardware, similar to how HTC produced the HTC One M8 with Android and Windows versions. Hopefully, we shall see more initiatives like this as the years go by.
