Nice to see alternative options, now when are we going to see the Ubuntu Phone old Mark has been going on about or was that canned?

Touch screen support without the inconvenience of a touch screen

I thought the ubuntu mobile thing was just a way of killing off Gnome. Didn't it work?

No Whatsapp voice, Skype or Google Hangouts. Now I know why these phones are being pushed by the likes of MTN .

It has better specs than my previous phone (Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S), would be interesting to see how well FirefoxOS runs on it...probably better than Android since it's designed for low-specced devices.

But Firefox OS still does not support WhatsApp. That is just ridiculous.

Over R2000 for that POS specs? I'll pass...

Can probably use Whatsapp Web and pair it to a real aka Android smartphone :p

the ZTE Open C wouldve been my first choice for a firefox phone, especially because it can run kitkat too.

if it's like the browser, then you won't get annoyed while waiting for updates like with android. firefox releases a new version every 83 seconds.

i wouldn't mind one of these. i'll be in the market for a work phone soon, but i actually want something with good battery, but cheap. i'll go scour the web for details on this one.

I've been waiting to get my hands on a FF phone but other devices in that price range have more RAM so I'm not sold on it yet.

If its like the browser it will need 16gigs of ram.
