Say hello to the first Firefox OS-powered smartphone, the ZTE Open. ZTE's Open goes on sale in Spain today on the Telefonica Movistar network and will cost 69 euros ($90 or so).




But, it gets better - for $90, you get the ZTE Open and a 30 euro pre-paid balance for calls, as well as a 4GB microSD card. Quite the bargain if you ask me. Inside the ZTE Open, we have 256MB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera and 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen. The OS is built entirely on HTML5, which means it has the ability to run a variety of apps.


We should expect more Firefox OS-based smartphones in the near future, but it'll be a while before they start throwing punches with the big boys over at Apple, Samsung and Google.
