Firefox OS Based First Smartphones Announced by Mozilla

Mozilla announced the first two smartphones based on its operating system, Firefox OS on Monday: the ZTE Open and Alcatel One Touch Fire.
The two devices will soon be available through Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom. Telefonica announced that the ZTE Open will be offered in Spain starting on July 2 for 69 euros ($90).

Individual partners will release the dates of availability for each market. Mozilla said that the first Firefox OS will launch in Central and Eastern Europe under the wing of Norway-based Telenor “this year.”
Mozilla’s Firefox OS, which was one of the main topics during this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, is a HTML-based, open source mobile OS that should provide a user-friendly alternative to Android, especially on entry-level handsets.
Mozilla hopes to conquer much of Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America with Firefox operating system — most of which are currently dominated by cheap Android devices.
ZTE Open is a 3.5-inch smartphone with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 256MB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, A-GPS and Wi-Fi.
Alcatel One Touch Fire boasts nearly identical specs, but is powered by a Qualcomm processor.

    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
