Firefox OS proved there’s little there. The new operating system from Mozilla promises a lot and seems to be a compromise between iOS and Android. Mozilla today unveiled the first two mobile running on the OS. It is in fact two terminals for developers.
The first batch of smartphones running the HTML 5-based Firefox OS have been unveiled. Keon and Peak. These are the names of these smartphones developed by Spanish startup Geeksphone. The Keon is a smartphone with moderate power, since it features a Snapdragon S1 processor clocked at 1 GHz speed, coupled with 512 MB RAM and packs a 3.5″ HVGA display. 4GB of Internal storage and despite its low-end nature, GeekPhone has thrown in a microSD card slot. The only camera is at the back and it features a 3MP senor and no flash. Under the orange back panel resides a 1580mAh battery.
The Peak is a little beefier, since it has a Snapdragon S4 dual core processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz, 512 MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a 4.3 inch qHD IPS display with a definition of 960×540 pixels, the Peak packs an 8MP main camera with LED flash and 2MP front-facing one. The smartphone is housing a 1800mAh battery, a microSD card slot and the usual array of smartphone sensors and connectivity options.
GeekPhone says both Firefox OS developer smartphones will be available starting next month, but is mum on the pricing. However, judging from their specs and the budget-oriented nature of Firefox OS, they should be in an affordable price.
