There’s some good news for people who want a Mozilla Firefox OS smart phone. ZTE, the China-based company has decided to sell it on eBay for $80 per handset. And although it is a rare occurrence, in a way it figures. The products are sold at very reasonable rates. In the US it is available for just $80 and in the UK the price is 60 pounds through eBay. This methodology is being pursued so as to widen the consumer base. The orange handset is a means of allowing denizens of the global village to gain access to advanced technology.
Mr. Dai Wenhong, VP of ZTE Corporation said, “It is great honor to launch the ZTE Open Firefox OS phone worldwide through eBay. ZTE is devoted to providing more options for customers globally and enabling them to live better lives via advanced technology. The ZTE Open offers customers a smartphone experience at an incredible price point, making it ideal for cost conscious consumers or those looking to upgrade to a smartphone for the first time.”
The ZTE Open is a smart phone on a shoestring budget. There are no local apps that come with this cheap product. Already, ZTE is spreading its influence in countries such as Spain, Columbia and Venezuela. The global variety of the smart phone is unlocked, meaning that developers may employ it as they wish. There is even a version hailing from Hong Kong which sells for $51. The company has catered to those people who want the product without having to shell out some extra cash. If anyone is lacking in the financial department, he or she may look to ZTE’s Open as the answer to their dreams. Desires are legitimate especially in today’s hyper-commercial world. And they seek fulfillment via the purchase of copies of high end products that look exactly like the real thing.
Dr. Li Gong, Mozilla Senior VP of Mobile Devices said, “Mozilla is dedicated to moving the Web forward as a platform for innovation and building products that people love. We are pleased that now we will put the full power of the Web in even more people’s hands. With a great potential user base, we know that even more developers around the world will create their apps with new APIs to stimulate an inspiring new wave of innovation.”
