Korean tech. giant, LG's first-ever Firefox OS based handset has already been making the Latina rounds in the Brazil, where it has been since the last October. And while none of us have heard much about the US availability on the Fireweb device, the handset did show up at the International CES 2014, alongside a smattering of the other already-announced smart phone devices running on this newly entered mobile 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!
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.
