Like other Firefox OS phones the Alcatel OneTouch Fire has a small 3.5-inch display and is powered by a modes 1Ghz processor with only 256mb RAM and 3 mega-pixel rear camera!
Pricing is expected to be very competitive for this little phone, but how well will it sell when compared to similar Android phones?[ Source ]

For apps developers the new Firefox O/S has opportunity written all over it, particularly in markets such as China, India, South America & the African continent.
China’s low cost smartphones could do so well in these countries with an alternate to the other established operating systems.
I believe ZTE will be manufacturing a range of low end phones.
As Firefox is far less hardware resource heavy compared to any other O/S, I can only imagine how fast it would run on a smartphone with a quad core and a Snapdragon 600 processor on board costing US$150.
