Several mobile players have already confirmed that they will launch Firefox OS handsets. These include big names such as LG, ZTE, Huawei, Sony and Alcatel. However, Samsung is apparently willing to leave Firefox OS to smaller players.

With Android, iOS, BB10 and WP8 all competing in an overcrowded market, we’re not sure there is any room for yet another mobile platform. Still, the Mozilla crew could surprise us.
