The ZTE Open is a Firefox smartphone, which could appeal to prepaid carriers. Launched initially in Spain, the phone is sold at only 69 Euro or S90 off-contract. Customers also receive 30 Euro of additional prepaid credits in their account, which sweeten the deal immensely. But with its new operating system, the ZTE Open has yet to prove itself in the market. The Firefox OS is known for its powerful integrated search feature.
Without doubt, the phone is affordable, but users get what they pay for. The device is generally a budget model with humble hardware configuration, including 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7225A single core processor, 3.5” HVGA display, 512MB of internal storage and 3.2Mp of rear-facing camera.
The Firefox OS is currently at its infancy and users won’t have too many opportunities to enjoy 3rd party apps. Previously, Geeksphone released earliest Firefox smartphones in April, the Peak and Keon; so the Open is the third in the market.
