Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. As I have previously mentioned, Alcatel will unveil their next Firefox OS based phone at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014.
Before the MWC, we found out that Alcatel One Touch POP (D1 Fire) will be the next Firefox OS based from Alcatel. While we don’t have a full specifications list yes, we know that it will come with a 4.5 inch display with a resolution of 1280×768, an 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 Snapdragon 200 CPU and an Adreno 302 GPU, and will be using Firefox 1.3. No information about the memory, storage space is available yet, but we will find all this details after MWC.
It looks like Firefox OS is doing quite well. For now, we know for sure that 2014 will bring ZTE Open C and ZTE Open II, the next two Firefox OS based smartphones developed by the Chinese manufacturer, and Geeksphone Revolution. Also, Mozilla and Foxconn are working together in order to release the first tablets using Firefox OS by default.
For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geeksphone.
While Firefox OS has been experimentally ported to the Google Nexus 7 tablet, Mozilla has teamed up with Foxconn and VIA Technologies, in order to release Firefox OS based tablets.
