Firefox OS Flame reference device now shipping to developers
The Flame, Mozilla's Firefox OS reference device, is in the process of being shipped out to developers. That group includes Mozillians (individuals or groups that were involved in the Mozilla Project) or developers that bought the device when it went up for pre-orders in May. The handset comes with an unlocked bootloader and is also carrier unlocked.

The Flame is equipped with a 4.5 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 854. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200. You can adjust RAM from 256MB to 1GB, and there is 8GB of native storage that can be expanded, thanks to the 32GB microSD slot. The Dual SIM handset features a 5MP camera on back and a 2MP snapper on front. An 1800mAh battery keeps the lights on. There is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC connectivity.

The reference device helps developers test out their handiwork on the Firefox OS, to make sure the apps they write will work on the OS. The device can be ordered online for $170.
