Firefox doesn't even support mp3 or wma in the browser where chrome does. Because most online radio websites use use mp3. & chrome works amazing.People out there reading my comment try & listen to Tunin radio in firefox because it wont work cause forefox doesn't support Audio codecs

I would like to see Firefox OS on Nokia phones :) not exclussive as they do with Micro$oft but as a separate line, for the sake of variety!

I think it will be a really good phone for the price and hardware. Remember, 2 gigs of RAM and 40 cores don't bring happiness. I bet it will actually be 2 steps forward compared to any same-hardware phone with Android. Good luck to Mozilla!

The Firefox OS security model is utterly broken. It's too easy for an attacker to put up a malicious web page to take complete control of a target handset, because the browser is allowed access to all the phone's features. Java, ActiveX and .NET all have similar broken security models.

this is like chromebooks ( chrome os) , really weak, useless, just for web and relying on web, even this one is weaker than chrome os!

If it's more than $120 off contract, it's too expensive. Should be a sub $100 phone outright

These specs are really low end, even for 2 years ago. Ram is very limited

Sounds like crap for now. Low end device, basic OS features, nothing new, except for some minor tweaks. Guys at mozilla have never really convinced me for innovations. Mostly they copy Opera browser.

One thing i loved with firefox OS is that, it just requires base knowledge on HTML,CSS,JAVASCRIPT and DB. There you can create your own app.

Android really dont require much hardware to run well, low end china android phones are not fast but quite snappy compared to Symbian phones with comparable ARM11 processors.

Maybe it's low end phone...but there is a trick here....firefox tell ZTE to make this low spec hardwre on purpose just to tell us that the firefox OS is a light weight and does not need a high end hardware like android......
