Nokia may bring Z Launcher to Firefox OS

0saves

If everything goes well Nokia may bring it’s popular Z Launcher to Firefox OS in near future. In reply to a user Feedback, Z Launcher Product Manager, John Kneeland has confirmed That  they are looking into Firefox OS Support. As most of you know Nokia’s HERE Maps is already available for Firefox OS, this may add another feather to the Open Source Mobile OS.

The news came to the world when John addresses a user on Nokia’s Z Launcher forum about the future of Asha range of Smart-feature phones.

Consider a Firefox OS port.
A large segment of Nokia’s customers in the developing world used Asha phones, which were mostly priced in the sub US$70 price segment.

As the Asha Platform has been shelved, the natural progression for these users is to Firefox OS, which offers a comparable experience in this price range. (Android phones in this price are often too slow for use or offer a horribly outdated version of the OS).

Nokia can continue to connect with their customers on this platform using Z Launcher in the same way that they have done with HERE Maps on the Firefox OS phones.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this in the Marketplace. A Game Boy Color emulator? Seriously?! I know that the Internet Archive is working on those Atari emulators in Javascript, but they still don’t work very smoothly even on my computer. So how well would this work?

The phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and 1.5GB of RAM, while internal storage is 16GB. There is no mention of external storage, but we assume it will have at least 32GB option via MicroSD card.

The phone is built around a 4.68″ display of 720p resolution adding up to a pixel density of 313ppi. It’s not the thinnest at 139 x 70 x 10.5mm and weighs 148 grams.
