You may have recently seen some funny-looking headgear on the brows of top Google execs—and while it may look like a nerdy fashion statement, Google’s Project Glass very well may be the future of human-machine interaction.

Mozilla said it won’t be launching its own hardware to run the Firefox OS when it’s finished, but the company just announced a “Developer Preview Phone” to put the system to the test. It’s not the same device seen sporting Firefox OS at CES, but its specs are similarly basic. The handset will feature a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen and a 3-megapixel camera on the outside, with a 1 GHz Snapdragon S1 CPU, half a gig of RAM, 4GB of storage (expandable by microSD), WiFi, and a 2G and 3G antenna on the inside. Nothing too extraordinary—just enough to run the software. Mozilla is promising OTA updates to Firefox OS to keep devs up to date. No word on a price yet, but the first units are expected to be available next month.
