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.

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!
