Alcatel surprised the world a few days ago with their Alcatel POP 2 range, which runs Android, Firefox OS and Windows Phone.
As can be seen in the picture above, the navigation buttons are hardware, not onscreen and unfortunately the phone does not triple boot, with the OS choice up to the retailer or carrier.

The device is similar to Microsoft’s lowest-end reference design, but features LTE and can record in 720P.
Hopefully we will be seeing more such devices over the next few months, hopefully at the somewhat higher end also.
