    Future Android Competitor? The First 'Firefox' Smartphone


    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.

    Just looking at that picture makes me wonder if it's just running Android in the background. :P

    I don't think it will be a competitor, may be future lawsuit bait for Apple by looking at the design.

    Even in they made the phone free, the real cost of a phone is the contract/data plan. I don't see it competing with any LTE/4g based phones in any way, shape or form.
