Mozilla Firefox OS for Smartphones

Mozilla, the company behind the open-source Web browser Firefox, will soon launch its own smartphone operating system, Firefox Mobile OS. It will compete with the likes of Android, Windows Phone and iOS.

The OS is currently under development as Boot to Gecko (B2G). It will bring all of Mozilla’s strengths to smartphones: First-class HTML5 rendering, efficient design, a truly open-source platform unencumbered by middleware, and some of the core elements of Linux technology.

The first Firefox OS-powered devices are expected to be launched in Brazil in early 2013 via Telefónica’s Vivo service, and will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.  Mozilla also said on Monday that mobile network operators Deutsche Telekom, Sprint, Smart, Telecom Italia , Telenor and Etisalat will back the Firefox platform. They have also identified the potential of the technology to deliver compelling smartphone experiences at attainable prices.

Firefox Mobile OS can help us drive an HTML 5-based platform for creating lower cost smartphone options for prepaid, postpaid and wholesale customers,” Fared Adib, product chief at Sprint, said in a statement.

Mozilla said that “Boot to Gecko (and now, presumably, Firefox OS), unlocks many of the current limitations of web development on mobile, allowing HTML5 applications to access the underlying capabilities of a phone, previously only available to native applications.” The code will be available immediately in a public repository, and independent developers can easily get involved without having to sign waivers or buy into a developer program.

Mozilla and all other participants are committed to ensuring the project is fully open and the reference implementation of the required Web APIs is being submitted to W3C for standardization.
