As you probably already know, Firefox OS is the new mobile operating system, and according to rumors it will arrive on rather low-end devices. Now Korean company LG introduced its first device that uses the mentioned OS.
ZTE and Mozilla have released a media statement saying that they will soon start selling what they say is "the first Firefox OS smartphone that is based entirely on web technology" on the eBay. They also say that users with this device get the performance, personalization and price they want in a smartphone packed into a beautiful, clean, intuitive and simple user experience.
Mozilla has increasing support from device manufacturers for the upcoming operating system Firefox OS. Along with existing partners, Mozilla published 19th company that will support this OS, Taiwanese Foxconn.
In order to attract developers to write applications for their operating system for mobile devices, Mozilla offers them free mobile phones to use for development. This method of motivating developers is becoming more and more popular, just to remind you that BlackBerry recently also decided to give their Z10 smartphones to the developers of applications for their new platform.
Spanish manufacturer of mobile phones based on the Firefox OS, Geeksphone, on the first day of the sales sold out all copies of the mobile phones that are now intended primarily for software developers.
Mozilla has released new details about the availability of Firefox OS devices. Just before the start of the Mobile World Congress Mozilla they released a list of telecom operators, hardware manufacturers and the countries where smartphones running OS Firefox will initially be available. Some of the companies listed have already announced they have started development of smartphones with this OS. Among those listed are Samsung, LG and ZTE, and later this year they should be joined by Huawei. All these producers will make their models based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon mobile processors.
