ZTE’s new, slightly better Firefox OS phone is now available for purchase. You can pick up an unlocked ZTE Open C from the company’s eBay store for just $100.

While the ZTE Open C has entry-level specs, it’s actually a big step up from last year’s original ZTE Open.

ZTE Open C

The ZTE Open C features a 4 inch, 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. It has a 3MP rear camera and a 1400mAh battery and supports HSPA+ networks as well as 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

It doesn’t have a full HD screen, a front-facing camera, or any number of other feature you’d expect from a higher-priced phone. But the ZTE Open C is a an entry-level device aimed at price-sensitive customers in emerging markets as well as developers and other early adopters interested in getting their hands on a device running Mozilla’s browser-based, web-centric mobile operating system.

The original ZTE Open launched with even lousier specs, including a 3.5 inch, 480 x 320 pixel display, a 1 GHz single-core ARM Cortex-A5 CPU, 256MB of RAM, 512MB of storage, and a 1200mAh battery.

You can also pick up the ZTE Open from the company’s eBay stores for the UK, Germany, and Russia and the EU.

  1. This is cool. I’d buy this.

    I guess I’ll update the Firefox simulator and see if they have fixed the email, and see if CardDAV is now supported.
