Mozilla has been working on their Boot to Gecko project for quite a while now with the main purpose of creating a mobile platform, which is based on open web standards such as HTML5. Work on this project of their seems to be going quite well and we should be seeing the first devices, running this OS, hit the market in the coming months. Meanwhile, Mozilla have announced, that the platform (which has changed its name from Boot to Gecko to the simpler Firefox OS) has managed to attract some important partners (both network operators and smartphone manufacturers).
The first operator was Telefonica, which has already been joined by Sprint, Deutsche Telekom, Smart, Telecom Italia and Telenor. From the manufacturers the list isn’t really that long with just two names present – ZTE and TCL (the company behind Alcatel), though both companies are quite promising – ZTE, specifically, have been doing very well in the budget sector lately. Sadly, there is currently no information out about the coming devices and their technical specifications, though we have already found out, that the processor, they’re going to be using, are going to be Snapdragon ones.
