Firefox OS Phone revealed for developers
Mozilla has unveiled the first Firefox OS hardware, built with low specs by Geeksphone for developers
Firefox OS seems like it should be here shortly, with Mozilla increasing press around it, as well as holding a hack day specifically to learn the phone. To add to this, the first piece of Firefox OS hardware has been revealed – although this is specifically for developers.
The phone’s specs are extremely low, and reminiscent of 2009’s HTC Nexus One, albeit with a lower resolution screen:
CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 1Ghz
UMTS 2100/1900/900 (3G HSPA)
GSM 850/900/1800/1900 (2G EDGE)
Screen 3.5″ HVGA Multitouch
3 MP Camera
4GB ROM, 512 MB RAM
MicroSD, Wifi N, Light and proxmity Sensor, G-Sensor, GPS, MicroUSB
1580 mAh battery
There’s currently no release date for the phone, but they will be sold off-carrier/unlocked. The low powered design is part of the Firefox OS ethos, as the HTML 5 run system apparently does not require the full power of Android or iOS.
