LG has just unveiled its new smartphone running on Mozilla’s budding mobile operating system, Firefox OS dubbed LG Fireweb. Mozilla, the company we know for making the popular Firefox browser have been hard at work with their very own mobile operating system which is aimed at budget smartphone buyers.
Mozilla has failed to get any real traction with its Firefox OS although their have been some low end phones launched running the OS like the ZTE Open but this is the first time LG has made a smartphone featuring the Firefox OS.
LG Fireweb features a 4-inch 480×320 pixel display, 1 GHz Qualcomm processor, 4GB internal storage along with microSD expansion, a 5 MP Autofocus camera coupled with a LED flash. There’s 3G connectivity and a 1540 mAh battery to run the show.
Jay Sullivan, COO of Mozilla said, “We built Firefox OS as part of Mozilla’s mission to put the power of the Web in people’s hands and offer the best Web experience possible. We’re happy to see Firefox OS gain momentum with partners launching new devices in new markets and developers around the world being inspired to innovate”.

The OS looks tacky to me but we hope it matures and becomes some good in the coming future. Right now the OS is in budding stage and its Marketplace also has a handful number of apps.
