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.
