Samsung’s three-sided display may make the Galaxy S6 Edge a little different, but it won’t be the most unique smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.

Monohm, a company based in Berkeley, California, that makes “heirloom electronics,” will announce a perfectly round smartphone called the Runcible that’s designed to look like a pocket watch.


If Firefox is your browser of choice on Android, then you’ll be pleased to know it’s getting Chromecast support. The ability to stream to Google’s $35 dongle is already integrated into the latest Firefox beta — which is available now — signaling its upcoming debut in the public release.


Chromecast has been a runaway hit for Google selling millions of units within months of its release. Mozilla is now set to battle it out against Google’s $35 HDMI streamer with its own Firefox OS powered device that will work in a way similar to its competitor.

The unnamed device will allow users to beam content from their mobile devices, PC or Firefox browser to their TV. 


Mozilla may have its own Firefox OS smartphone platform now, but that hasn’t stopped it from teaming up with EverythingMe to develop a new Firefox Launcher for Android. Its aim is to make it easy for you to “discover the content you want in any moment,” and it seamlessly integrates with the Firefox web browser for Android.


Geeksphone, the Spanish smartphone startup behind the world’s first Firefox OS smartphones, has revealed more about its up-coming Revolution handset ahead of its February 14 launch.

Of course, its main selling point is its ability to dual-boot both Android and Firefox OS, but the handset also offers a 4.7-inch qHD display, an Intel Atom processor, and an 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting 1080p video.
