It has been pretty long that we started hearing about the Firefox OS phones. When Mozilla claimed that the device will be cheap, it is sure that nobody would have thought it would be this cheap. The Spanish broadband and tele communications provider Telefonica informed the world that the ZTE Open will be released today in Spain. There, it will be releasing with a price tag of €69, which is near to 5400 Indian Rupees. Adding flavour to it, the phone comes with a free airtime pack of €30 (2350 Rupees) for the prepaid customers. Now there are dropped jaws! The ZTE Open will be the first Firefox phone to be released by Telefonica this year.
Commenting on the launch, Luis Miguel Gilpérez, CEO of Telefónica España, said, "We believe that smartphones need to be more open and that the web is the platform for making this possible. Consumers should not be locked to any one system but have the choice to consume the content they want and the flexibility to be able to take it with them when they change devices. This first open web device marks a significant milestone in making this possible. This is just the beginning as we plan to bring a wide range of Firefox OS devices to our customers."
One thing is to be admitted that, the ZTE Open will be ensuring the customers a special smartphone experience at such a cheap cost. The experience is only going to be enhanced further as new features and capabilities will be added to it via over the air updates.
There is a magical touch in the user interface of the ZTE Open. The phone has the ability to adapt to the user's changing needs. On your swipe to the right from the home screen of the phone, you will find a search area. Type the desired thing on it, and you will see the entire phone getting adapted to the search. For example, search for an artist and get results to buy songs, watch music videos, buy concert tickets and even listen to them instantly without having to download and install any apps.
The ZTE Open features a 3.5 inches HVGA TFT touchscreen display. It will be having a 56MB RAM and 512MB ROM. The device will be coming packed with a 3.2 MP rear camera. The camera will be having built in filters. The phone will be supporting Nokia HERE maps and browsing experience will obviously be provided by the Firefox Web browser.
Telefonica has confirmed that they will be releasing the phone in other markets in the coming weeks. But whether the device will cross the Indian shores or not, we are not so sure. But the device is sure to appear in Colombia and Venezuela. The Firefox Operating System is one of the several smartphone operating systems, which are expected to hit the market this year. Some other OS are Jolla, Tizen, and Ubuntu Phone.
Get ready to be shocked. It costs only 5400/-
