Firefox OS’s latest devices the Alcatel Fire C, Fire E, Fire S, Fire 7 and ZTE Open C are now official

I’ve been such a big fan of android from the beginning, but that hasn’t tamed my curiosity on rival operating systems from Apple, Microsoft and now Mozilla. Android is by far the fastest growing mobile OS and is only second to iOS on the number of applications and support community; for techies, this doesn’t necessarily mean best, but it’s something worth noting. Firefox OS just began taking those essential baby steps, and as things look, I’d say, so far so good. It’s good to have a light-weight operating system that targets those who are not willing to spent much on a smartphone; however, without adoption from device makers, nothing good can be achieved from such initiative. Until now, Firefox is yet to make a strong appearance on the market by things seem to be looking-up going by the latest devices released from ZTE and Alcatel.

Alcatel and ZTE seem to have bowed to the latest Mozilla’s Firefox OS by unveiling interesting mid-range devices that come pre-installed with the OS – Alcatel’s Fire C, Fire E, Fire S and ZTE Open C devices that were unveiled recently, are powered by Firefox OS. These devices, features both budget and mid-range specs to go with Mozilla’s version 1.3 Firefox OS.

Alcatel One Touch Fire C

With a price tag expected to stay around 59 Euros, the Alcatel One Touch Fire C has everything you’d expect from a mid-level device. Underneath is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a VGA camera is located at the back and features a 3.5inches HVGA display.

Alcatel One Touch Fire E

The One Touch Fire E comes with meaner specs to those of Fire S, it has the same 1.2GHz dual-core processor to that of Fire C but with a slightly beefed-up 4.5inches qHD display and a mid-level 5.0 MP snapper.

Alcatel One Touch Fire S

The Alcatel Fire S is the most beefed-up device of the lot, featuring an IPS 4.5inches qHD display, 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, an 8.0MP snapper and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The handset also supports category 4 LTE networks.
