Making its debut at Mobile World Congress 2014 is Alcatel One Touch and Mozilla’s first Firefox OS-based tablet, the 7-inch Fire 7.
Fire 7 is using a great material on its rear, the one similar to Kindle Paper white which makes gripping good, unlike most of the Android tablets. Fire 7 is 9.9mm thick and weighs 285 grams, though it does not feel heavy. Its rounded ages rest nicely on one’s palm. There are no sharp edges in the device.
Fire 7 is a beautiful thin tablet with 7-inch qHD 960×540 pixel display, which is a too low resolution. The device runs on Firefox OS with 2GB RAM.
The dual-core 1.2GHz processor powers the Firefox tablet. It is sporting with VGA rear and front cameras and holds 4GB internal storage that can be extended up to 32GB through the microSD card.
Priced at 79 euros ($108), the Fire 7 comes across as really cheap tablet for the masses. It’s definitely not going to rock the Android or iOS boat, but it sounds like a cool new toy to try out without burning a hole in your wallet when it finally debuts in Q3.
