Front reminds us of the iPhone.
After demonstrating Firefox OS on a couple of unbranded and bland looking devices, Mozilla has just announced two developer preview phones, and they do indeed look better than expected.
What is more interesting though are the specs. Although it was speculated that Firefox OS will be limited to the low and/or mid-range phones, developer devices are far from slow, which is both exciting and concerning. If these devices are an exception, we wonder how will developers be able to test their apps and make sure that they run smoothly on a far less powerful phone.
So what about the specs? Mozilla has revealed two models, Keon and Peak:
The Keon model
CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 1Ghz
UMTS 2100/1900/900 (3G HSPA)
GSM 850/900/1800/1900 (2G EDGE)

4GB ROM, 512 MB RAM

4 GB (ROM) and 512 (RAM).

Those are pretty juicy specs, to be fair and we can’t wait to see a detailed hands-on review when these phones are made available in February. For even more details and all developer talk, check the following page.
