Firefox OS devices officially released
More at Mozilla...
Almost two years ago, we announced Boot to Gecko (B2G) here on Mozilla Hacks. We discussed the aims of the project and the work we were planning to do. Today, all that work has paid off and we now have official Firefox OS devices in store!
Last week the first Firefox OS phones went out in stores in Madrid, Spain, for sale by Telefónica. These phones are a great example of a low-cost telephone built on Open Web Technologies.
It means that if you haven’t gotten started at looking how to build your apps or your content with HTML5 and Responsive Design, now is the time, to have the chance to be among the early options in a brand new market.
Coming to more countries
Telefonica’s launch in Spain was the first for Firefox OS, but Poland, Colombia and Venezuela also have upcoming launches soon. It doesn’t stop there, though, look out for more countries coming soon.
Open Web Apps
Firefox OS runs the web and has a web browser, but if you want to offer an app-like experience, get access to more hardware and APIs and more, building an Open Web App could be a perfect option for you.
