In what can be described as the first commercial launch of a smartphone based on the new Firefox mobile operating system, the ZTE Open is all set to go on sale in Spain from tomorrow. Network operator Telefonica will be lending the carrier support to the ZTE Open which has been priced at an extremely affordable 69 Euros. This translates to about $90 USD only. However, if the price is cheap, there is a good reason for it too. For the device sports specification that can be considered just about decent.
Upfront, it will be a 3.5 inch HVGA display having a resolution of only 480 x 320 pixels. The smartphone comes with just 256 MB of RAM along with 512 MB of internal memory. That sure is paltry going by recent standards and thankfully, there is a micro SD card slot for users to bump up their memory when needed. The network operator too is offering a 4 GB memory card as part of the package to sweeten the deal. Other features of the ZTE Open include Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, aGPS, accelerometer, ambient light sensor and so on. Powering the device will be a 1200mAH battery pack. The device also includes a 3.2 mp fixed focus camera integrated at the rear. The device though is quite handy, sporting external dimensions of 114 x 62 x 12.5mm.
The deal will be inclusive of a 30 euros worth of pre-paid balance with each set. Users will also have the option to avail of contracts priced as cheap as just 2.38 euros per month. Meanwhile, Telefonica has also stated they intend to launch the ZTE Open in Venezuela and Columbia in the coming weeks.
