A few days ago, we covered a deal that Mozilla Corp. made a deal with Chinese chip maker Spreadtrum to supply the chipsets for a phone that will cost a measly $25! You read that right, the subsidiary of the non-profit Mozilla Foundation will charge you just $25 for a device that covers the basics of what we call a smartphone today. The folks over at Bloomberg managed to get some hands-on time with the device during MWC 2014, and we couldn't, in good conscience, let you miss out on this small miracle...

Potentially good OS, yes. Android, no.
Google is a multi billion ad/ search giant.
Mozilla is a not for Profit foundation.
Googles resources far outweigh Mozilla. 50/1.

This is very innovative. Other compaines just add a fancy name to it and sells this kind of phones for $100 at least. Truly even most of the iPhone and Galaxy users use the phone for making calls and listening music. They do not even use net because the data charges are high for them.

Well, this thing will cost 200%-300% than the original price. Tax in my country sucks

I'm buying one simply because it's 25 dollars.
