The quote is from an industry analyst, not from a Firefox partner.  So, how much value does an analyst have that gets something this basic wrong?

Here is the quote: "FireFox OS has less processing and memory requirements, since the OS and the services live mostly in the cloud."

I have been following the Firefox OS development and this is straight out *wrong*.  

None of the OS is in the cloud.  It is not dependent on an internet connection.  If this guy is a partner with Mozilla, perhaps he should not be giving interviews (as this misinformation hurts them).

@chanj, I somehow don't think the lack of apps is going to be a problem for  those first time smartphone users who have never had apps on their phones before,

@prabhakar, I agree. Feature phones without Internet connectivity are history, now.

It seems Game Over! for the feature phones now. With the smart phones becoming available for such a dirt cheap price who need to stick to those simple phones?

 

With internet availability on mobiles at affordable rates and with reasonably good bandwidths,  and a hoard of cloud based apps , these phones are surely goind to create a storm in the mobile marketplace.

Please Watch out Apple!

The introduction of low cost smartphones is inevitable. It is time. The challenge of another OS is the limited variety of apps. Windows phone is experiencing the lack of apps and the popularity is limited. How does Mozilla tackle the challenge?

I may like understand paradox - a person gets very low cost $25 phone. And after that he runs Firefox apps from cloud on 2G/3G network (which is pretty expensive).

How a person will be able to afford costly 2G/3G data network?

Yes, I also explored the matter little bit, it is all the way a new architecture, and requires a separate binary to be places in Firefox Market Place. So what one can expect is the firmness on the price point, if the FireFox OS bases phone is to be sold at higher than 25$ then it will be a very tough time for them to sell. As that is the only attracting feature for a new buyer.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
