Mozilla, Spice and Intex to introduce the world’s cheapest smartphone in India at $25
Mozilla, producers of the popular Firefox web browser, is partnering with local brands in India to produce the world’s cheapest smartphone, ever.
Talking about brands, Spice and Intex are the two companies mentioned in the deal while chip maker Spreadtrum will produce processors for the smartphone which Firefox says will cost INR 1,500, roughly $25.
Spice co-founder and CEO Dilip Modi said that the device will be named Cloud FX (maybe something like Mozilla Cloud FX?) and will have a retail value of “anywhere between 1,800 [Indian rupees] and 2,000 [Indian rupees].
Earlier reports suggest that the device will run on the new Firefox OS, and will have a 3.5-inch screen, 128MB of RAM and 256MB of internal storage.
On the global level, Firefox will partner with Alcatel and ZTE to bring a Firefox-running smartphone to the hands of customers.
