Ok, frankly! Why is firefox targetting on sub 2k cheap good for nothing hardware phones?

I personally believe that firefox should come up with a more polished version of the os along with more software support, specially whatsapp. To top that, it should strictly be available in decently specced phones. Only then firefox will be able to gain popularity with real users. These sub 2k phones are piece of crap which even first time smartphone buyers will overlook, since even the rural buyers are getting smarter and conscious now.

Alcatel is a decent brand name, but the specs are ridiculous even for such a low price. A phone should be functional. The battery spec sucks. The device is too thick. With such a stupid specs, will anyone buy a smartphone. Memory is cheap, why only 128 mb RAM? Will the phone run fast enough to scroll the pages smoothly. Price is not the whole issue, but functionality is.
