The PEAK PLUS is a 149 euros and on preorder. It is a great example of a Firefox OS phone with a bit of power behind it. This device is a 4.2 inch screen, 1GB ram and a dual core snapdragon CPU, alas no LTE (4G). The device has an 8MB camera, microSD, bluetooth, proximity sensors, g-sensor, compass and GPS.
This shows that Firefox OS and HTML5 web apps might not just be for low end $80 phones. With Amazon backing HTML5 as the future coupled with a true open web standard OS might be the signs of a simpler mobile future?
What is for sure, mobile devices and operating systems based on real open standards such as Firefox OS will take some time to gain significant market share. The challenge is these devices are unlikely to have the same advertising spend as Apple or Samsung so their market share growth may take longer than some may like.
For at least the next 10 years the mobile app space is going to continue to be fragmented and dynamic.
