Nice. I wanna buy xperia E to test this myself. It's gonna be good performance with 512MB RAM, the zte openhas more than enough cpu power but lacking in RAM, 256MB is too low.

I wanna try FF OS on the original ZTE Blade, it has just a slow Arm11 cpu but it's 512MB RAM makes Android 2.3 run very well. Not like wp8 with minimum of dual core krait!

Ubuntu is more mature than this, forget about it and focus on the 100% open-sourced linux os Ubuntu.

Firefox os will target low end phones just because its currently available on low end! that doesn't sound good to me :/

Should have chosen windows phone platform instead of a new platform wrong decision...windows phones are the thing now, android has lost its flair.

What about the updates? Will Mozilla update the phones or will be the same chaos as in Android?
