While the race between Apple iOS, Google Android and Microsoft Windows for Phone is what gets all the news now, the scenario could change pretty soon when "highly hackable", truly open-source alternatives like Ubuntu One and Mozilla Firefox OS comes to the playing field.
LG has taken the leap of being one of the early supporter and have already unveiled their first smartphone powered by the fox - the Firefox OS. Named "LG Fireweb", the phone features an 4-inch touchscreen display with 480 x 320 resolution, 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 4GB of expandable storage and a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash. The hardware specs and feature sheet is nothing to get excited about, but do mind the fact that this phone is targeted to cater the entry-level, cheap smartphone segment. Do watch the video demonstration posted below to watch the phone in action.
