ZTE Open spotted at MWC: Firefox OS for emerging markets will become a reality!

   Hot on the heels of the pictures of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 some cheeky monkey has managed to get around to the ZTE booth where they've snapped a picture of what will soon be ZTE's first Firefox OS based device.

   As you can see from the spec sheet above there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and the MSM7225A is actually the same processor as in the LG Optimus L5, the HTC Desire C ans Sony's Xperia Tipo. It can be clocked at speeds up to 800MHz, although either 600 or 800MHz are the standard choices, so this is not a powerhouse by any means!

   Other than that there's a capacitive TFT LCD screen which has a HVGA, that's 480 x 320p resolution and there's a 3.2MP camera which may well be just on the front of the device, we're not sure what 'FF' stands for at this point. But, the 1200 mAh battery, the 512MB of internal storage, the 256MB of RAM, the usual array of sensor and connectivity options round out the budget handset! 

   With this device don't be too phased by the poorer specs, Firefox OS is designed for emerging markets so this is exactly the sort of hardware Mozilla is targeting. When we have more details or a picture of the 'ZTE Open' we'll be sure to let you know!
