In this roundup: ZTE's Firefox OS phone is perfect for hunting season! Plus: Metro Last Light comes to Linux, and Netrunner 13.06 protects your privacy and fights censorship!

So this could be a huge niche market for the Firefox OS phone. Who knows, perhaps we'll see it at Cabelas, Bass Pro and other places. Not exactly the typical places people go to buy phones, but perfect for the hunting crowd.

And if you lose the phone or it gets damaged while out in the woods? Hey, no problem. It's only $80 so it's not like you have to replace an expensive iPhone or top of the line Android phone. The cost is minimal, comparatively speaking. So rugged terrain, angry bears, cranky moose and other dangers shouldn't set you back much if your Firefox OS phone is lost or damaged.
