When Mozilla presented Firefox OS they said that it’d be cheap to run, though few people could have guessed how cheap. Telefónica tweeted that the first of the Firefox OS devices would be releasing in Spain tomorrow.

The ZTE Open Firefox OS device launches tomorrow in Spain costing €69 incl €30 balance for prepay customers

Named the ZTE Open, the device is destined to retail at 69EUR (90USD). The ‘free’ airtime with the phone likely won’t be included forever, so customers could see a price drop after that as well.

The ZTE Open’s existence was known about back in February, as attendees were able to try the phone at the Mobile World Congress. In regards to specifications, the Open is basically what you’d expect. A Snapdragon MSM7225A chipset is the core of the device, with an Adreno 200 GPU handling graphics for a 3.5″ display.

Telefónica is a major player within Europe, owning the O2 network as well as operating other services.
