Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. As you may know, Alcatel is an early Firefox OS supporter, being the first mobile manufacturer that has released Firefox OS based smartphones.
At MWC 2014, Alcatel has announced their next Firefox OS based phones and tablets: the Alcatel One Touch Fire C, Alcatel One Touch Fire E, Alcatel One Touch Fire S phones and the Alcatel One Touch Fire 7 tablet.
New information about the Alcatel One Touch Fire 7 has been released. Among others, the first Firefox OS based Alcatel tablet has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display (540 x 960), a Dual-Core 1.2 GHz cpu, VGA front and back cameras, 2 GB RAM memory, 4 GB internal storage + support for MicroSD card up to 32 GB.
The tablet will be available for about 79 Euro, starting with the third quarter of 2014.
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.
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, Geeksphone Revolution,
While Firefox OS has been experimentally ported to the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Also, information about the three reference Firefox OS based tablets (Foxconn InFocus, VIA Vixen and Firefox OS Flame) is available here.
