Mozilla & Gecko clones "This week we are announcing our new Firefox OS developer preview phones because we believe that developers will help bring the power of the web to mobile. These developer phones are being developed by Geeksphone in partnership with Telefonica and Geeksphone." Loving the orange.

Excellent!... for some

I was psyched right up until I looked at the specs on the phones: no UMTS Band IV. Crap. Well, guess I'm just going to have to find something else to install Firefox OS on.

Lower specs

The specs are less because they are aiming for the for lower-end smartphones market. Especially the developing countries such as Brazil and China.

In countries like Brazil marketshares aren't yet set, supposedly that is where the most growth and demand is for a new type of phone.
