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.

I doubt I would be a very good reviewer for this, I've never had smartphone. So I don't have any experience to compare it with.

Makes it even more interesting. The biggest problem with current reviews of FirefoxOS is that they compare it to completely fleshed out platforms on modern phones.

For instance did you know that FirefoxOS is usually based on a 6 month old Firefox? This means that all the memory improvements that have been implemented in Firefox have yet to fall in FirefoxOS. So when a review says that it runs pretty good on a 256MB device imagine how much better it will be when it gets updated in 6 months. And even better imagine how it runs on a 512MB device.
