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.

They aren't really intended for most of the people in the US market.

As the article says:

'it's meant to deliver a smartphone experience to those who'd otherwise buy a basic cellphone -- not to become the "next iOS or Android."'

This is part of the reason FirefoxOS exists, bring smartphones to people that don't have a lot of money to spend on it.

So hardware will be less amazing if you pay less money, who would have expected that ?
