    A Week with Firefox OS Flame

    disclaimer: I’m still using the stock version of the o/s shipped with Flame which is 1.3.0.0-prerelease I haven’t hook the device up to my Mac and do something with either AppManager, AppMaker or anything else Following my previous post about unboxing Firefox OS Flame, it’s now time write a little review about the device. I was using the phone for the past week, not doing much actually. Mostly i used it for making couple of calls (voice and ussd), browsing, trying some apps, taking screenshots and photos.

    Unboxing Firefox OS Flame

    At MozSummit 2013, me and a fellow developer from France asked (or maybe complaint :P) at Chris Heilmann class about the difficulties on getting Firefox OS device.
