Flame – The new Firefox OS smartphone reference

Flame – O novo smartphone de referência para Firefox OS

Last year when Mozilla announced the arrival of Firefox OS at Mobile World Congress, they also introduced couple of Developers Preview devices manufactured by Geeksphone. They even distributed the Geeskphone Keon and Geeskphone Peak to the App developer for free.

This year to continue the development process, Mozilla will introduce a Developer Reference Smartphone.

O ano passado quando a Mozilla anunciou o Firefox OS no Moblie World Congress anunciou também dois equipamentos destinados a programadores fabricados pela Geeksphone.

Este ano para continuar o processo de desenvolvimento a Mozilla apresentou um Smartphone de referência para desenvolvimento.

At Mobile World Congress, Mozilla is showcasing its new developer reference phone, the Firefox OS Flame, enabling developers to test the capabilities of Firefox OS in a real environment with a mobile network and true hardware characteristics like the accelerometer, NFC and camera.

Like the commercially available Firefox OS phones, the Flame developer reference phone is powered by a Qualcomm processor, in this instance a high powered 1.2GH dual core processor, so developers can test their more processor-intensive games and apps with ease.

O novo smartphone de referência chama-se Flame e permite aos programadores desenvolverem mais e melhores aplicações.

Tal como nos dispositivos comerciais o Flame tem um processador Qualcomm, dual-core a 1.2GHz.

Developers looking to target their apps for specific Firefox OS phones with lower memory footprints also have the option to alter the RAM capacity of the Flame, from 1GB to 256MB, to see how their apps would perform on lower specked phones.

The Flame also provides developers and early adopters with access to the latest Firefox OS builds to test nightly releases and contribute to the overall development platform.

Programadores que estejam a desenvolver aplicações para dispositivos específicos com características mais modestas podem reduzir através de uma opção a memoória RAM do Flame de 1GB para 256MB e ver como as aplicações se comporta em ambientes mais limitados.

O Flame dá também acesso às builds nightly que permitem testar em primeira mão as novidades e contribuir para a melhoria do sistema.
