LG Fireweb

We haven't had a chance to fully test this product yet, but we've assembled this helpful overview of relevant information on it.

The Fireweb, by LG Electronics, is the first smartphone to utilize Mozilla’s Firefox OS, an ultra-light operating system designed for lower-end phones. In particular, the Fireweb ships with version 1.1 of the OS, which Mozilla claims improves scrolling smoothness and load times. All basic smartphone functions—multimedia messaging, e-mail, web browsing, etc.—are included in the package, and support for Facebook and Twitter is built-in.

Tech-wise, the Fireweb sports a modest 4-inch touchscreen with a 480 x 320 resolution, powered by a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor. The rear-facing camera is of the 5 megapixel variety. That’s really it—the Fireweb is being marketed as a cheap alternative to flashier smartphones.
