Alcatel’s OneTouch Firefox OS phone also hits the FCC

Yesterday, ZTE’s Open smartphone was approved by the FCC, and today Alcatel’s Firefox OS-based smartphone – the OneTouch Fire – has been also approved.

Just like the ZTE One, the Alcatel OneTouch Fire is an affordable, entry-level device. It features a 3.5 inch HVGA display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, 3MP rear camera, 1GHz single-core processor, 256MB of RAM, MicroSD card support (up to 32GB), and a 1,400 mAh battery.

As it has done in the case of ZTE Open, the FCC has posted the User Manual of the Alcatel OneTouch Fire, too.

Telefonica will launch both the ZTE Open and Alcatel OneTouch Fire in select markets starting the next few months.

In the US, Firefox OS handsets will be released only starting 2014. Sprint could be the first carrier to do it. There’s no word on what companies will manufacture Firefox OS phones for the US market. It could be not just ZTE or Alcatel, but also LG, Huawei, or even Sony.
