Even though this isn't Android related, it is something that could potentially impact Android in the future. Could the phone in the pic above actually give Android some serious competition in the future? Supposedly, the pic is of the new "Firefox" Smartphone developed by Mozilla. We even have some specs to go with it, although they are a bit lackluster:
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
- 512MB of RAM
- 3 megapixel camera
- 4GB of internal storage
Of course, higher-end hardware specs do not necessarily make a product better. Perhaps the Mozilla Firefox Mobile OS can do more with less... Regardless, it would take some impressive features and functionality to draw people away from the big dogs of the industry like iOS and Android. It might be interesting to see what develops from this, especially considering that Mozilla has a very open mindset about development, just like Google. Also, more competition in the market is likely a good thing.
Still, it's hard to see this device as much of a threat when other bigger name players like Microsoft and RIM can't seem to get a decent foothold. Share your thoughts.
