Some tech experts have played around with the new OS based handset a bit and they were not particularly taken with what the device was offering up the hardware-wise, which is no giant surprise – the famous gadget maker company is not exactly offering up its A-List devices for the worldwide famous browser, Mozilla’s nascent Operating System.

The shiny back color of the device has got a decidedly plastic feeling; though this thing certainly brings it in the gloss department. The acceptable four-inch display is also a pretty uninspired 480 x 320 pixels and while the 1GHz single core processor is not worth writing about, it certainly does a decent enough job running those HTML5-based applications smoothly.

At the top, the users will find the power button and the 3.5 mm. headphone jack, with the volume rocker on just the left-side and also, a microUSB jack on the bottom of the side.

And thankfully, the low budget phone, $207 asking price, would not cost you an arm and a lef. So, if you’re interested, give it a try!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
