Spreadtrum planning a $25 Firefox OS smartphone - read the full textYou heard that right. Spreadtrum and Mozilla are planning on releasing a smartphone that retails for $25. Spreadtrum is a cell phone manufacturer that isn't exactly known around the world, but it shares the same vision as Mozilla does: delivering smartphones to consumers at the lowest possible...

I will absolutely buy this one but only my secondary smartphone. Great phone.Far better than feature phone on this segment.More apps(not as GP Store or app store)and almost polished UI(Don't think like Steve Jobs!! because iOS is unmatched still)I am a apple lover ( its taste better than banana!! ;-).There is nothing to worry for Apple,Microsoft and Google(I am not sure).May be it's a ultra low end android smart phone killer. THANK YOU MOZILLA FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL GECKO. We are waiting for its tablet version. I am just waiting for my new phone;-)

So, relax and be sure it will get to Nigeria. Major targets would be emerging markets anyway.

according to engaget, "The heart of the effort is the SC6821, a Cortex A5-based chipset that supports WCDMA and EDGE networks, but not LTE. The platform includes WiFi, Bluetooth, cameras and FM radio, though touchscreen support appears to top out at 3.5-inch HVGA panels"

One of features most people asking in emerging market is Bluetooth file transfer, missing that will scale down sales of those devices

25$ nice, sure I'll buy it. Also there is no spy crap from google/apple. Mozilla may be a real alternative
