The Firefox phone is almost here #

Snapdragon S1 1Ghz, 512 Mb RAM, MicroSD support… and it runs Firefox OS.

This should be fun. Developer preview units are going to be available early February. It’s a short run of hardware, following the mould of sports car manufacturing with a strong brand name behind it  (think of the limited runs that Ferrari do), and I can’t wait to see how the OS works in the real world. The question of getting it up to scale is a tougher one, but not one for the geeks and hackers to address at the moment.

Right now it’s about sorting out the code base.
