Alcatel's OneTouch Pixi 3 is like a box of chocolates: You never know what you're gonna get
LAS VEGAS -- I don't even know how to start describing the Alcatel Pixi 3 I saw at CES 2015, because there's no single phone to see. There are 24.
Alcatel is starting with four base configurations and letting carrier partners choose the data connection (4G LTE or 3G) and the operating system (Android, Windows Phone, Firefox).
So, the Pixi 3 that shows up in your country could be anything from a 3.5-inch Firefox OS handset with a 1GH dual-core processor and 5-megapixel camera to a 5-inch Android 5.0 Lollipop phone with an 8-megapixel camera and quad-core chip.
