Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox OS could actually be wildly successful, no matter how underwhelming the actual phones may be. And that's because - at least for now - you're not the customer; your carrier is." I'm extremely disappointed by Firefox OS so far. There's nothing wrong with the low-end hardware we've seen during MWC, but there is something wrong with low-end hardware that can't even properly run its operating system. To make matters worse, carriers are the boss here. Terrible first impression.

These things are build to be maximum cheap, 256mb RAM, single core, 512MB storage + SDcard, no patent payments to Apple or Microsoft AFAICS etc

So then, I take it, they're not going to support fat32-formatted sd cards on the grounds of not paying for Microsoft patents? That'll really make the Windows users happy. ;)

Well, technically they could just support SD-Cards and just format them with EXT4 or something and use them then.
For third world market that might make some sense, for western makets they should come with more build in storage and omit the SD-card slot.
