Mozilla gets 2 developer devices for its Firefox OS

Mozilla is all set to make way in the smartphone space, no not with their browser but with the mobile OS. Mozilla has teamed up with Spanish startup Geeksphone, which will be making hardware for them. Mozilla has already made clear that it will not be making hardware and it has already produced a pair of developer devices. The two developer devices are named as Keon and Peak and are for developers to look into the future of the OS in the market, which is dominated with Android and iOS. As Mozilla is new in the market so getting an expensive device will not be a great idea at all, so Mozilla is pushing on its entry level device Keon. Keon has got a 3.5 inches HVGA display with a screen resolution of 480X320 powered by a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor with 512MB of RAM. In addition to this it features a 3MP rear facing camera with 4GB internal storage with an option of microSD card. The other device Peak will be a little high end offering from the company with a 4.3-inch qHD display with a 960×540 resolution, powered by 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. Peak will also have 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage with SD-card slot and for photography it has got an 8MP rear camera with 2MP front facing camera. Well both the models are just for developers and will not be available in the market, the aim with these devices is to get in some developers testing on the platform and starting development for Firefox OS. When the OS finally launches it will be an open source project much like Android, which can be adopted by any company in their devices.
