Firefox OS on the ZTE Open

Mobile
Hi. This is Steven Shanklin for CNET News. I'm here in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress Show with Brendan Eich, Chief Technology Officer of Mozilla. And we're here to look at the ZTE Open. This is one of the first Firefox OS phones. The ZTE Open is a phone-based on a Qualcomm referenced design. The ones we are testing today had an 800MHz single core ARM Snapdragon Processor made by Qualcomm. But when they actually ship, they'll come with a 1 GHz processor. They're pretty low-end machines with 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of flash memory. It's got an Adreno GPU, also from Qualcomm. The screen has SVGA resolution. It's not a very responsive touch screen and it doesn't have a very good field of view. So if you're looking at it from an angle, it can be hard to read and it can be a little hard to type on the keyboard but it's still early days for Firefox OS so there could be more software optimizations and of course we'll see higher-end phones with better touchscreen as well. From Barcelona and Mobile World Congress, this is Steven Shanklin with CNET News with the first look at the ZTE Open Firefox OS phone.
