Video: LG gives Android the cold shoulder with new Fireweb phone

LG Fireweb Firefox OS Smartphone

It’s been a long time coming, but Firefox OS has finally made its way onto a phone from a from a major smartphone vendor. The LG Fireweb, LG’s first ever Firefox OS device, debuted in Brazil on Tuesday along with the Alcatel One Touch Fire. The LG Fireweb will feature a 4-inch screen with a 480 x 320 pixel display, 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of internal storage, and the ability to expand to 32GB with microSD support. The entry-level specs might not attract smartphone users in the market for the most advanced handset, but the $129 BRL ($59 USD) price tag on contract at Vivo Brazil could make this a great jumping off point for Firefox OS.
