The Firefox-OS powered streaming stick will be shipping later this year, according to Mozilla.
A secretive new project aims to bring Chromecast-like media streaming to a Firefox-OS powered TV dongle. Check out an exclusive first look at a prototype of the device.
The ZTE Open C, a $100 smartphone running Mozilla’s Firefox OS, is being sold on Ebay with a price tag of $100.
The plucky Spanish outfit’s own-brand smartphone may offer loads of operating system options, but its repeated discounting suggests it’s not terribly popular. Geeksphone has also revealed the processor for its upcoming Blackphone.
Good news for privacy fans: the Blackphone is pretty decently-priced if you take into account the extensive bundled security services, and Deutsche Telekom is making a real effort to put privacy-enhancing tools in its users’ hands.
ZTE’s latest smartphones are a study in contrast, from a 6-inch Android-powered “phablet” to a 3.5-inch phone that runs on Firefox OS.
If you’re jonesing for a phone that can run either Android(s goog) or Firefox OS without voiding the guarantee, you don’t have to wait much longer. The plucky Spanish manufacturer Geeksphone said on Tuesday that it will start selling its Intel(s intc) Atom-based Revolution handset through its online store from 20 February at a cost of €239 ($326) excluding tax, though it’s offering the device at a slightly discounted €222 for a limited period of time. We now also know the built-in storage capacity: 4GB (thankfully there’s also a microSD slot). One reminder: branding issues mean Geeksphone has to call Firefox OS “Boot2Gecko”, which is Mozilla’s old codename for the operating system.
I’ve been waiting for a web-based tablet and it looks like it’s coming soon. But it’s not the Chrome tablet I was expecting. Instead, meet the first slate in the Firefox OS tablet program.
The Spanish handset maker Geeksphone has released some specifications for its Revolution phone, which will allow users to change operating systems without voiding the warranty — it will come with Android(s goog) as standard, but users will also be able to install Mozilla’s Firefox OS (or Boot2Gecko, as it’s known in the case of non-Mozilla partners such as Geeksphone). Now we know the Revolution will be based on a 1.6GHz Intel(s intc) Z2560 processor and will sport a 4.7-inch IPS qHD screen. It will have a 2,000mAh battery and an 8-megapixel camera with flash. It will also have expandable storage, although Geeksphone hasn’t specified the built-in storage yet.
The Geeksphone Revolution promises an intriguingly versatile device, but it’s not all good news — Geeksphone has had to inform those who pre-ordered its current theoretical flagship, the Peak+, that the device has been cancelled due to supply chain problems.
