During this year’s Mobile World Congress, Mozilla announced they would be partnering with a number of handset makers to ship out devices that feature their Firefox mobile OS. Once such device that was announced was the ZTE Open, which sports a 3.5-inch 320 x 480 pixel display, a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 256GB of RAM, 512MB of internal storage, a 3MP rear-facing camera, microSD support for up to 32GB and a 1200mAh battery.. Since its unveiling, the device has been made available in Spain, but today, those in the U.S. looking for a low-end smartphone can proceed to do so as the device is now available.

ZTE has made its ZTE Open available through their exclusive eBay store and will only cost you $80. Yes – that’s extremely cheap in the world of smartphones as you could probably already tell based on its specs alone. If you’re interested in the ZTE Open, you should know it’s a GSM phone that supports AT&T’s network, although you should be able to get 2G speeds if you’re a T-Mobile subscriber.

As for its operating system, Firefox OS will support applications that are written in HTML5, JavaScript and a number of other web technologies. Since we don’t have a Firefox OS device on hand, we’re not entirely sure what apps are available for the OS, but for $80, this device won’t exactly break the bank if it turns out you’re not a fan of it.
