Man, have I ever got a bad feeling about Firefox OS hardware. I've been in this game long enough to know not to be blinded by specs, and appreciate what a difference the platform can make; just look at Windows Phone, which has done admirably well with hardware that's a solid generation behind Android. I can also appreciate that Firefox OS is looking to launch in markets where cost is going to be a big deal, and that's more true than ever when we're talking about a largely unknown, unproven platform.

The cat may be out of the bag for the ZTE Open, the company's first Firefox OS smartphone, but that's not the only thing ZTE came to the Mobile World Congress to show off. To get the full scoop on the Open, as well as learn about the company’s other new hardware, our attention turns to the company's MWC press event this morning. First up, ZTE announced the Grand Memo, its new Android phablet. While earlier reports from the MWC gave the Grand Memo a 5.7-inch 720p screen, just a tad larger than the Note II or Optimus G Pro, the company is now saying it will be a 1080p display; perhaps ...
