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.

It is designed with “minimalism, resource efficiency, and user choice” in mind. The devs strove to provide a “system that is functional but not bloated“.

It is based on the latest Ubuntu LTS. Read more

Join the rapidly growing community of people who are living without the limits, lack of security, and lack of privacy afforded by proprietary operating systems. The question I had in the beginning was: How do I find a computer that runs Linux? The answer is becoming increasingly more accessible—you can download an "ISO." An ISO is an archive file that contains an identical copy of the image that could come on a CD or DVD. The easiest way to get started with desktop Linux is to use virtualization software, but most of the time, I prefer bare metal. You can find an ISO file at Fedora, Ubuntu, ElementaryOS, and many other Linux distributions at Distrowatch. Read more
