Mozilla announced this morning that pre-orders are now being accepted for Flame, the new Firefox OS reference design for developers. In cooperation with T2Mobile, the Flame is designed to be the reference device for Firefox OS development.

Mozilla calls the Flame "a high quality reference device [for] our developer community at an affordable price." The Flame comes with mid-tier hardware while costing $170 USD for the unlocked device. The Mozilla Flame Firefox OS phone has a Qualcomm MSM8210 Snapdragon SoC with 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 4.5-inch (854 x 480 pixel) display, rear 5MP camera with flash, front 2MP camera, GSM/UMTS support, 8GB of memory, 1GB of system RAM, GPS, NFC support, dual SIM support, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and micro-USB support.

The Flame is expected to begin shipping in about four weeks and will ship free worldwide (except Japan) for the $170 USD price.
