Mozilla SELLS FIREFOX MOBILES ... in Greece

My guess is that these Devices all come with the a MediaTek CPU. So the chances of it being a useful plaything to hack 'round with are virtually zero. Then again, not everyone wants to pay +500€ for the privilege of having a modest 'Droid, or iThingy either. Such types are more worried about the Voice Call quality of the Device instead. Should it have all the needed "Sensors" required for GPS Navigation, so much the better.

IMHO the things that probably kill it are the Screen, and the 4GB of shared ROM, and a paltry 512Mb of RAM. The MediaTek CPU can be a bit of a hit or miss afire. Especially when it comes to the non-existent updates. Not to mention MediaTek's ughh reluctance to release a decent SDK for such People who'd be interested in creating Custom ROMs for such Devices. Be it for Android or Firefox...

But, I wonder if Mozilla have any plans in trying to convince such writers of Android Custom ROMs to give their Mozilla OS a try?
