Tried ordering the Flame for development purposes and it was a complete disaster. The partner chosen to distribute the devices spent a month sending me from pillar to post eventually escalating into a Paypal claim.Who cares whether the O/S carries support from the local carriers? Of more importance is support from App Developers.
That was the theory, but reviews of some of the cheap handsets show it doesn't fare too well on low-end handsets.From what I have read Firefox phones run well even on lower hardware.
. Low-end smartphones need a low-end-appropriate operating system, and Firefox OS isn't up to that task
And then the funny bits:Early versions of Android and iOS certainly ran better on similarly specced devices in the past
The [camera] output from the Cloud FX is more like a vague recollection of the colors and, if you're lucky, a shape or two.
Let's hope this isn't one of the phones we're gettingThe shell does at least serve its primary purpose of holding the phone together
I actually installed the Firefox OS SDK to try and see what it was all about. Was a bit fiddly, but I got a hello world app to work in the emulator, and then changing it and running again just nothing happened. Needed to reboot the machine, then it worked again for a while and then stopped working again.Judging by similar complaints on the forums I imagine that dozens of developers have simply given up on Firefox OS for now.
