Bringing it to Europe this year


ZTE and Mozillla are working hard to bring the first Firefox OS based smartphone to South America and eventually Europe.

Unfortunately, there are not many precise details regarding the actual specs of the smartphone but it is currently known that the company is currently in talks with an unknown European carrier. According to Cheng Lixin, CEO of ZTE USA, the company might unveil the same smartphone is the US sa well, depending on the demand and interest. It is still early to talk about specs but we are pretty sure that more info will surface by the end of February once Mobile World Congress 2013 kicks off in Barcelona. 

Firefox OS will first appear on entry-level smartphones and it will try to rock the Android boat. If ZTE manages to get at least a tiny spark of interest, we are quite sure that most, if not all, manufacturers would follow, although we doubt that it might actually hurt Google's market dominance.
