Mozilla & Gecko clones

Whether or not the Open fits your needs, one thing is clear: Mozilla needs more capable hardware to demonstrate Firefox OS' potential. The Open is good for someone whose alternative would be a basic flip phone, but the camera quality, connectivity, display and performance don't do full justice to the software.

A promising start, but clearly better hardware is needed. I'm really hoping Firefox OS gets a fair shot.

But the whole point of this phone is will it be enough?

With the new Install to Homescreen coming to Chrome 31 for Android, it's apparent that Google will have the same platform and have better handsets at the same price. I fear FirefoxOS will be crushed.
