The Flame smartphone comes with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 854×480 display

Mozilla is now taking pre-orders for its unlocked “Flame” smartphone, which runs the company’s Firefox OS. Flame is aimed squarely at developers and will be available globally.
 
“We worked with the manufacturer to keep the price as low as possible,” explained Mozilla when talking about the launch of Flame. “We’re excited that we are able to bring a high quality reference device to our developer community at an affordable price.”
 
That “affordable price” is $170 including free shipping from overbuying.com.

 
The Flame is by no means a “specs monster” and is admittedly Mozilla’s vision of what a mid-tier smartphone running Firefox OS would look like. Keeping that in mind, the specs for the Flame are as follows:
  • 1.2GHz, dual-core Qualcomm MSM8210 Snapdragon processor
  • 4.5” screen (FWVGA 854×480)
  • Cameras (F/R): 5MP with auto-focus and flash / 2MP
  • Frequency: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
  • UMTS 850/900/1900/2100MHz
  • 8GB memory, MicroSD slot
  • 256MB – 1GB RAM (adjustable by developer)
  • A-GPS, NFC
  • Dual SIM Support
  • Battery capacity: 1,800 mAh
  • Wireless: 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 
While pre-orders for the Flame are now open, we surely hope that you aren’t in any hurry to get the smartphone. Mozilla says that it will take four weeks for the devices to ship.
