SAN FRANCISCO: SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Mozilla's Firefox mobile operating system (OS) has tipped up on an engineering sample of the Dreamfone, a low-end smartphone.
Mozilla's Firefox mobile OS is intended for smartphones that cost less than $100 in emerging markets. It has been loaded onto the Dreamfone, a low-end smartphone that features an ARM Cortex A5 chip running at 1GHz.
Our limited interaction with the device did show a little lag in some visual transitions, but given that the device and the operating system are still in development there is still scope for software optimisation.
However even at this beta stage Mozilla and its developer community have shown a decent breadth of applications on the Firefox mobile OS to make it a credible low-end smartphone alternative. µ
