LG Fireweb is the company's first Firefox OS device
The LG Fireweb sports a frugal 4-inch, 480x320 pixel display, 4GB of internal storage and it gets its juice from a wholly unimpressive 1GHz Qualcomm processor. Unlike other competing Firefox OS devices, however, it sport a more impressive 5MP camera unit that actually has auto-focus and flash, so it's not entirely useless in low-light conditions. The LG Fireweb will be initially sold through Telefonica's Vivo Brazil for about $207 for pay-as-you-go customers and $59 on a regular subscription. The carrier has also announced that it'll be launching Firefox OS devices in other nearby markets, including Peru, Uruguay and Mexico.

Awesome. Maybe one day Firefox OS will actually be good

Very androidy and a bit like iOS6 with the home screen icons and left swipe for searchbar, but the searchbar feature is quite interesting. Map feature (looks just like Google Maps?) is quite nice too. Would be nice if the UI has a refreshing look that stands apart from the other OS.
Overall can't see the appeal in this OS yet, but I hope it continues to improve and add some innovative features and UI tweaks to it.

Any OS/handset which is good with low cost is appealing

i wouldn't say that it's good just yet.

Let's just say it's an LG Optimus L5 with a faster clock speed and with Firefox OS in it.
