Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 Can Run Android, Firefox, or Windows
Alcatel OneTouch today announced the Pixi 3 series, an affordable selection of smartphones that is among the first to run one of three different operating systems. The Pixi 3 series can be loaded with the Android, Firefox, or Windows Phone platforms. Consumers won't be able to switch/load the operating system themselves; rather, the devices will be programmed by carriers. Further, the series comes with four different screen sizes (3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and 5.0 inches). With the variety of operating systems and screen sizes available, consumers can find the perfect device for their needs. The Pixi 3 series also supports 3G and LTE 4G for many regions around the world. Alcatel did not provide more details about the Pixi 3 series, such as specs, pricing, or availability. Alcatel OneTouch also launched its foray into wearables today with a new smartwatch. The Alcatel Watch Series promises to offer elegant and affordable wearables that undercut the competition. According to Alcatel, the Watch Series is packed with sensors and apps that can monitor daily activities. It connects to Android devices and can be used to control music, take photos, and receive notifications. Alcatel did not say what platform the Watch Series runs, nor did it provide any specs or other details. Alcatel OneTouch has more news planned for the days ahead during the Consumer Electronics Show.
