Mozilla Firefox OS Gets It's First Two Smartphones! Is this the Next Big thing?

Did you ever notice how Android sneaked in Mobile Technology and later captured reasonable amount of market share. Maybe someone would have never ever thought how these small innovation changed the whole scenario, you know what i am talking! Today when we look around while opting any mobile phone we also check it's OS which suits us the best indeed why not if i am a mid-level cell phone user buying too expensive high end smartphone is just a waste of money. While we may be attached to iOS or Android we may ever have looked around why?
    Well that's not we are bothered here we are looking for maybe the next big thing or you can say gonna-be. Yes, It's about Mozilla Firefox OS. It was recently under development and significantly even ready. Truly speaking if you look around the competition that exist today, it stands nowhere. However, until now Mozilla has confirmed that they will not work for any Hardware for their OS and they will depend upon other vendors. So today it's out they have teamed up with a Spanish start-up company Geeksphone to offer pair of developer devices.

The devices having Mozilla Firefox OS will be called Keon and Peak. Certainly these devices are meant for developers and look beyond the way mobile technology are these day and compete with existing giants Android and iOS.

Given Mozilla’s focus on emerging markets, it’s Keon, the entry-level device, that the company appears to be pushing most. Powered by a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor, the device sports a 3.5-inch HVGA (480×320) display, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. It also offers a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a microSD card slot.

Peak is a little more advanced, packing a 4.3-inch qHD display with a 960×540 resolution, and a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. It also offers 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and two cameras: an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Prior to it's public release Mozilla is aiming for developers to test the OS not for the consumers so that the development takes place. Shipping of these devices are not yet confirmed neither it's price.

After the launch of Firefox OS it will just like Android Open Source platform that any third party mobile phone manufacturers can adopt.
