Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 is compatible with three operating systems

Alcatel OneTouch has announced its latest range of Pixi smartphones which will arrive with the rather unique ability to run one of three operating systems.

The Pixi 3 line of smartphones will allow users to choose from one of three mobile platforms; Android, Windows Phone or Mozilla’s Firefox OS.

The affordable devices will come in 4-inch, 4.5-inch and 5-inch sizes featuring 4G-ready mobile internet speeds. There’ll also be a smaller 3.5-inch version with 3G data.

Details are a little thin on the ground right now, with Alcatel claiming it’ll reveal more information in a few days at CES 2015.

The company is also reportedly plotting a new line of devices under the Palm name, but it’s not thought this announcement has anything to do with that.

Earlier on Friday, Alcatel also announced a new, affordable smartwatch imaginary titled the Watch.

The round-faced Moto 360 rival will offer an integrated heart rate sensor, remote messaging, call handling, fitness tracking and music playback control.
