In Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 news, Mozilla and a partner, Spreadtrum, have announced plans to produce a $25 smartphone running Mozilla’s FireFox OS. Pardon me for not being quite excited.

That phone cost about N15,000. This one will cost about N4,000. When I see and handle one, I shall be convinced.
