Mozilla’s Firefox OS is a bit a laggard when compared to iOS, Android, and even Window Phone. This prompted Mozilla to pair with lower end gadgets manufacturers such as ZTE. ZTE Open C was auctioned for as little as $99 on eBay during its launch.
The device is aimed at first time smartphone purchasers. Notwithstanding the fact that it is affordable, this Chinese gadget boasts of several advanced features that sophisticated smartphones have. The list includes 4-inch WVGA display screen, and a 3 megapixel camera, apart from Firefox OS.
This is certainly a smart move on the part of Mozilla. It will help it to corner larger market share primarily because most people who have not been able to own a smartphone so far, would be eyeing this device. This market is quite large, and if they get familiar with Firefox OS, leading device manufacturers may soon have to follow suit.
