alcatel one fccIt was not too long ago when we talked about how ZTE’s Open smartphone managed to pick up the collective nod of approval by the folks over at the FCC, which made the news simply because it is a Firefox OS-powered device, and here we are with word that a different device this time around – the Alcatel OneTouch Fire, which so happens to run on the Firefox OS as well, has managed to gain approval from the FCC.

The Alcatel OneTouch Fire does have its fair share of similarities with that of the ZTE One, being a pocket friendly (in terms of size as well as budget, of course) smartphone that borders on the entry level side of things. It will carry a 3.5” HVGA display, HSDPA support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, A-GPS navigation capability, a 3-megapixel camera at the back, a single-core 1GHz processor, 256MB RAM, a microSD memory card slot, and a 1,400 mAh battery to keep things going for the entire day. The FCC did put up a copy of the User Manual of the Alcatel OneTouch Fire, and we ought to see this smartphone arrive in select markets in the coming months.
