Mozilla announces Firefox smartphone launch partners

Mozilla has now confirmed 18 operators committed to the open web device initiative, including Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica.

Firefox OS smartphones are the first built entirely to open web standards, enabling every feature to be developed as an HTML5 application. This will give developers an advantage over Apple and Android as “the Firefox marketplace is web-based and will allow a device to do things differently.”

Vice president of products at Mozilla: Jay Sullivan, expects Firefox phones will be “sold first in the developing world and Eastern Europe and will be at the cheaper end of the smartphone market.”

Find out the remaining operators here, or read more into Mozilla’s history.
