Video: Here's the Firefox OS-based $25 smartphone

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.
pixel resolution screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM Radio and a 2-megapixel camera. A new, 1GHz single-core Spreadtrum chip will be powering the Firefox OS-based device.In case you're curious, those $25 get you a 3.5-inch, 320x480
As we argued not too long ago, an era of dirt-cheap smart devices may very soon be upon us, and so far it seems that Mozilla's Firefox OS will be leading the charge.

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.
