Firefox has a pretty long tradition in internet world, but when it comes to smartphones the platform is the new kid on the block. The first phone to run the OS was the ZTE Open launched in August. As basic as can be, the phone was clearly aimed at not too very demanding users. Now customers opting for Firefox platform will have another handset to choose from as LG joined in the fun with its Fireweb. For the moment, the LG Fireweb is available only in Brazil via Vivo Telefonica for about $207 for pay-as-you-go customers and $59 on a regular subscription.
LG Fireweb Firefox OS Phone
The LG Fireweb is by no means a high-end smartphone, however it offers some improvements over the ZTE Open. The Fireweb is a compact device sporting a 4-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels.
The Qualcomm processor clocked at 1 GHz is also nothing to be overly excited about. Internal memory offers just 4 GB of space for the content. Luckily, the phone has a microSD slot for storage expansion.
One of the strongest features of the Fireweb is its camera, at least when compared to the rest of the specs. The shooter comes with a 5-megapixel sensor with auto focus and LED flash, making it the best camera found on a Firefox-powered phone.
The handset comes pre-loaded with a Firefox Web browser, calendar, clock, and maps, with more apps available for download from the Firefox Marketplace.
