ZTE turned to eBay in the US and UK to sell its first Firefox OS handset, with the first batch going up on Friday, August 16. However, all of this initial stock has now sold out in just three days.

Retailing for £59.99 in the UK, and $79.99 in the US, the ZTE Open was released on Friday and has proved so popular that there’s no stock left until the next production run.

“We will make more Open available on eBay in September", said a ZTE spokesperson.

Available completely SIM-free and network unlocked, the ZTE Open runs the new Firefox OS, which is a HTML-based operating system.
