Mozilla's Firefox OS is limited to only few devices so far, and one of them happens to be the ZTE Open. Now, the OS seems to have impressed two other manufacturers, LG and Alcatel.
Thus, recently, Telefonica, a Brazilian telecom carrier, along with Mozilla, launched the LG Fireweb and Alcatel One Touch Fire handset featuring the same operating system in Brazil. Apart from Brazil, Telefonica has also confirmed that more Firefox OS phones will be released soon in Mexico, Peru and Uruguay.
LG's Fireweb comes with a 4-inch touch screen display offering a HVGA resolution of 480 x 320pixels, 1GHz Qualcomm processor and 4GB of expandable storage. There is also a 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash.
Alcatel Onetouch Fire has a 3.5 inch display, 3.2 megapixel camera, and is powered by Qualcomm processor clocked at 1GHz with a 2 GB memory card.
According to Mozilla, the smartphone features Facebook integration, and comes pre-loaded with games and apps such as Cut the Rope, Twitter, HERE Maps with offline capabilities, Firefox Web browser and Firefox Marketplace.
Moreover, additional apps can be downloaded via Firefox Marketplace, including Badoo, Box, Poppit, KAYAK, SoundCloud, The Weather Channel, TimeOut, TMZ and Tuenti.
Jay Sullivan, COO of Mozilla, states, "We built Firefox OS as part of Mozilla's mission to put the power of the Web in people's hands and offer the best Web experience possible. We're happy to see Firefox OS gain momentum with partners launching new devices in new markets and developers around the world being inspired to innovate. Our partnership with Telefónica Vivo demonstrates the rich, new experiences offered on Firefox OS by combining the best global and local content with LG's elegant new device experience."
