BARCELONA, Spain–Mozilla’s new mobile operating system, Firefox OS, has already shown its face on a handful of upcoming devices from Alcatel and Huawei. This time it’s the turn of the imaginatively titled company Geeksphone with the 3.5-inch Keon smartphone. Aimed more toward developers wanting a cheap phone to test apps on, the Keon will be priced between $100 and $150 when it goes on sale in the next few weeks worldwide, making it the first Firefox OS phone available to buy.

If you’ve already seen our hands-on with Alcatel’s One Touch Fire smartphone then you’ll be instantly familiar with the Keon. They’re almost identical, so much so that I struggled to tell them apart in our photos. Like the Fire, the Keon is a 3.5-inch device, wrapped in a bright “Firefox orange” casing.

BARCELONA–Nokia CEO Stephen Elop dropped his biggest hint yet that the Finnish phone company is working on an even lower-end Window Phone device to be priced below their just-launched Lumia 520.

Although Mr. Elop wouldn’t be drawn on the subject, he did nothing to deny suggestions that the €139 Lumia 520, which was launched here at Mobile World Congress Monday, would not be the cheapest device in the range.

Talking to The Wall Street Journal, when asked about other low-end devices, Mr. Elop said only “There still a lot of excitement to come in 2013.” When suggested that that meant a device below the 520 he would only smile and repeat “Let’s just say there’s still a lot of excitement to come in 2013.”
