New smartphone operating systems are rare, even Microsoft has to fight with the establishment of Windows phone 8. The proliferation of iOS and Android is great, also there are certain network and lock-in effects that slowly change the operating system user.

Otherwise, there are technically no more surprises. The 3.5 ″ resolves display with 480 × 320 pixels, LTE is not installed HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS, however. The internal memory is very small with 180mb, but can be expanded up to 32 gb with a micro-SD card. The technical specifications are little spectacular, why should so the Alcatel one touch fire be at all interesting? One should be very favourable, on the other hand to Firefox OS advantage over Android, iOS and Windows phone 8 possess a much greater openness. I.e. apps are not necessarily loaded via the Appstore, but are significantly more open thanks to HTML based and can be obtained from other sources. Thus the possibilities of a Smartphone can be used without but world to keep as much trapped the user in the own operation system as in the competition (so-called walled garden).
