"While the phone seems to be a bit outdated in the hardware department, keep in mind that Firefox OS is based on HTML5, JavaScript and other web-based technologies; it doesn't necessarily need the hardware that's packed behind the newer iOS and Android platforms."

HTML5, JavaScript, and other web-based technologies benefit greatly from faster processors (and likewise, experience suffers greatly from slower processors). I would be very skeptical that a 1GHz single-core CPU with 256MB of RAM allows for a good smartphone user experience under any circumstance.

Just made me think they could have a real winner if it did automatic torrent searches and connected to the internet through a VPN that keeps no logs. They'd blow Android out of the water. That's probably the only way they could hope to make headway in an entrenched and saturated market.

I have no idea why the quote is duplicated. I started with qutemsg and ended with /quotemsg
