Alcatel Pixi 3 comes with a choice of three OSes — and Android will still win

4 Jan 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Alcatel’s Pixi 3 series of phones has a unique feature; choose your OS.

Alcatel is coming out with a new phone that’s not just user-friendly but also OS-friendly: it’s compatible with Google’s Android, Mozilla’s Firefox OS, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone. “By opening the phones up to three different systems, it might be tricky for Alcatel to ensure a good user experience for every Pixi 3 owner, but the company at least has experience with all three operating systems,” The Verge said. Alcatel are not a name well known in Australian Android devices, as they’ve primarily made devices for the budget / prepaid sector, which have not (traditionally) been big sellers. It said Alcatel explained its move by saying users “don’t want complicated systems – they want something familiar from their work environment in the office.” Alcatel’s new Pixi 3 range are available in a variety of screen sizes between 3.5″ and 5″, and while the smallest version is 3G only, those 4″ and above feature 4G LTE connectivity as well.

This means, for example, that Telstra could offer a discount device running Windows Phone while the same phone could be offered by Optus running Android. Other details about the phone—like its specs—aren’t coming out until CES proper, and chances are they won’t be anything mind-blowing, and you’re probably going to be better off just buying a phone that’s made up its mind about what operating system it wants to run. There’s no indication of whether these devices will come to Australia or not, but one hopes that they will to increase the competition in the discount phone sector.

The only question is since Alcatel is now the owner for the good old “Palm” brand, are we going to see one of these running WebOS?! (No, no we’re not. Whereas providing decisions and types, the Watch can also be full of sensors and apps that permit customers to monitor every day actions, and connects to Android smartphones to management music, take pictures, obtain notifications and extra.
