Mozilla has started accepting pre orders from developers who want to try out the Firefox OS on a reference smartphone.

To standardize the design, development, and testing of Firefox OS, Mozilla has partnered with a company called Thundersoft to manufacture, distribute, and update a Firefox OS reference phone called the Flame.
