ZTE’s new Firefox OS phones
ZTE was one of several vendors to unwrap low-priced smartphones that run Mozilla’s Web-centric Firefox OS. ZTE’s offerings are the ZTE Open C and Open II. The Open C, shown here, is the more advanced: a 4-inch 800 x 480 pixels multitouch screen, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 CPU running at 1.2 GHz with 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage, 3 megapixel camera, support for GPRS/WCDMA/HSPA+, 1400 mAh battery with a promised lifepspan of six to eight hours. The Open II pares back on the specs, with a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 pixels screen, less powerful processor, less RAM and storage. They’ll be offered first in Latin America in Q2 by Telefonica.
