    these specs are ridiculously outdated imo, 1GB RAM is a necessity if they wish to compete in a mid-high end range, the processor isnt too bad I guess, providing thats a dual core right?

    You know Mozilla is developing the OS not the hardware, the hardware is an issue of handset makers, what Mozilla is after is the OS
