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.

The latest Android versions depend on faster hardware, you can't run the latest Android versions on cheap hardware. That is why you still see phones with Android 2.x on the market.

FirefoxOS doesn't depend on beefy hardware. It supposedly runs decent on cheaper phones for markets and people that don't want to spend as much money but still want a smartphone.

There are 6 billion people around the world with phones, only 1.1 billion of that are smartphones.
