Price : £70
Mozilla presented the first mobile phones operating its Firefox mobile Operating System at MWC in Spain’s capital last month, with guarantees that they will appear in the UK beginning of next year.
The first of these cellular phones, the ZTE Start (http://www.knowyourmobile.com/products/19604/zte-open-review-first-look) will be available in ‘emerging markets’ such as South america, Belgium, South america and Colombia before coming in the UK, where it’ll price around £70. That gives it a headstart on Ubuntu’s in the same way open-source mobile os, which is due out at the end of 2013. Mozilla says that Huawei, LG, Alcatel and Sony models will also create Firefox OS cellular phones.
Because it’s an open-source OS like Android operating system, developers can improve each new edition after Mozilla has built it, tweaking the OS to match different mobile phones.
There will be no limitations on where you can set up applications from. You can do so from the Firefox Marketplace (https://marketplace.firefox.com), or straight from programmers. One of the problems of using the iPhone is that users can only get applications from Apple’s App Store.
