ZTE is all set to launch the first Firefox OS phone for consumers, and it’s going to be cheap. How cheap? Read on to find out.

ZTE Open launch spain 90 First Firefox OS phone for consumers, ZTE Open, launches tomorrow in Spain for €69

Mozilla had declared a couple of months ago that with their new Firefox OS platform won’t compete in the high-end market. The company went on to declare that Firefox OS based phones will be cheap. How cheap? Well, we weren’t expecting it, but they meant as little as $50.

ZTE Open specifications:

  • 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A
  • 256 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM
  • 3.5-inch HVGA (480 x 320) Display
  • 3.15 MP Camera
  • 1200 mAh Battery
  • Firefox OS

While ZTE won’t be launching a $50 phone (that privilege lies with Indian manufacturer Lava Mobiles), the ZTE Open which will be launched in Spain tomorrow can be will go on sale for just €69, roughly translating to about $90. Think that’s a good deal? Well, let’s sweeten the pot. The €69 includes €30 (or about $39) of prepaid value to the buyers. Wicked cool (oops, that’s all I could come up with).

Don’t expect the hardware of the ZTE Open to blow you away, but hey, a fully functional backup phone for $90 is nothing short of amazing. This one will serve as a good deal for those who don’t fancy the new Nokia Asha 501.
