Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. As you may know, Alcatel One Touch Fire is a low cost Firefox OS mobile phone. Among others, it has a 1Ghz Single Core processor, 256 MB of RAM, 512 MB of internal memory but expandable via microSD, a 3.15 MPX camera, Wireless 802.11 b/g/n and bluetooth.
Alcatel One Touch Fire, using Firefox OS as its default operating system is now available in Italy for 79.90 Euro, via Telecom Italy Mobile (TIM).
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. The next Firefox OS based phone will be Huawei Ascend Y300II, which has better hardware specs than all the existing smartphones using Mozilla’s OS. It has been also ported experimentally on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, but there are some apps that don’t work yet.
Also, there are rumors that Tizen and Firefox OS will unify, in order to have more chances to become important Android and iOS competitors.
