ZTE Open with Firefox OS shows up at the FCC, User Manual included
Officially announced by ZTE and Mozilla back in February, the ZTE Open has been approved by the FCC a few hours ago. In case you don’t know yet, the Open is the world’s first smartphone to run Mozilla’s Firefox OS.
It comes with WCDMA 850 / 1900 MHz connectivity according to the FCC, so it will be usable on AT&T’s 3G network. Of course, AT&T probably has no plans to sell this handset, but that’s another story.
Sporting a 3.5 inch HGVA (480 x 320) display, the ZTE Open features a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon processor, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 3.2MP rear camera, 256MB of RAM, MicroSD card support, and a 1,200 mAh battery. If you’re interested in checking out its User Manual, the FCC has posted it here.
Spain, Venezuela and Colombia are three of the markets that are certainly going to get the ZTE Open, as Telefonica will release the smartphone there. Sales should start in the next few months. Needless to say, the Open will be cheap (although we don’t know just how cheap).
Alcatel has a Firefox OS handset, too: the OneTouchFire, which – like the ZTE Open – is an entry-level device.
