Alcatel’s Pixi 3 phones come in four sizes with your choice of three OSes.

If you’re worried about the smartphone market becoming homogenized, budget smartphone maker Alcatel has an interesting proposition for you: its new Pixi 3 smartphones are available in 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and 5.0-inch screen sizes, and all four of them can run either Android, Windows Phone, or Firefox OS.

Android and Firefox OS have never had particularly stringent hardware requirements, so there hasn’t been anything stopping OEMs from putting either OS on the same devices (aside from Firefox OS’ market position relative to Android, anyway). From the lone press shot above, it’s difficult to tell if the phones are using capacitive navigation buttons or onscreen ones, but onscreen buttons would make the most sense for self-described “OS-agnostic” smartphones. So far we’re missing information about specs, price, and availability, and we’ll need to know all three before we can say for sure whether these are worth anyone’s time.

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. The only spec we know anything about is cellular—the three largest versions of the phone support both 3G and LTE speeds, while the 3.5-inch model is 3G-only.

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.
