Klif brings Firefox OS to Africa


Probably you’ve heard something or anything about Firefox. Firefox not the browser but now we have a Firefox OS for phones.

Firefox OS

Firefox OS will be making its debut in Africa soon, this is due to a partnership entered between Mozilla and Telecommunications giant Orange.

The announcement was made during the launch of the Klif, the super-cheap Firefox phone that will be bringing new OS to Africa, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.


The Orange Klif will be launched initially in 13 countries (most of which are in Africa) for just $40 (which is about Kes. 3200) inclusive of free 6-months of voice, text messages, and data (free 500MB per month). This is an amazing deal, if you consider the 6-month package that comes with it.

The Orange Klif will go on sale in the second quarter of 2015 and will be available in Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia,
Cameroon, Botswana, Madagascar, Mali, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Niger, Kenya, Mauritius and Vanuatu.

Firefox phones are targeted at the very low end of the smartphone market and currently come at prices that Android can’t. The Orange Klif is no different it offers a modest specs with a 3.5-inch touchscreen with 320 x 480 pixels resolution and a 2 megapixels camera.

It is powered by a 1GHz processor with 256MB of RAM and 512MB of built-in storage. Obviously it will be having an additional or external storage.
