A little over a year ago, Mozilla announced plans to create a very cheap smartphone running Firefox OS, which would be available in late 2014 and would be offered in India and Indonesia for $ 25. However, the company announced that it was abandoning the idea because of its low interest in the device.
The smartphone announced in February this year was designed specifically for developing markets, where the most important criterion for the purchase of mobile devices is primarily the price. The device has a 3.5-inch display resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, 1 GHz Single-Core Spreadtrum SC8621 processor, Wi-Fi and a 2 megapixel rear camera. All this would be available for only $ 25, but it will not, because Mozilla has abandoned plans to introduce the device to the market.
Company Director Chris Beard explained that the idea was abandoned because of the low interest in the device. Mozilla, for the time being, is abandoning plans to create a cheap smartphone and instead develop and improve its mobile platform, Firefox OS.
The company’s latest idea to attract users to it is to implement system compatibility with some Android apps.
