Poland,United States : Mozilla takes on Google and Apple in smartphone software market [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Mozilla, the non-profit foundation, popular Firefox Web browser, is contriving to take over Google and Apple.
As per the California-based foundation, the phones that runs Firefox OS will appear this summer, starting in Brazil, Colombia, Hungary, Mexico, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, Spain and Venezuela.
According to research firm IDC, Firefox OS will land in a crowded environment, where many small operating systems are trying to become the "third eco-system," alongside Apple's iOS and Google's Android.
DT is the parent of T-Mobile USA, but it is planning to purchase Firefox phones first in Poland.
Phone makers that plan to make Firefox phones include Huawei and ZTE of China and LG of Korea. The first devices will be inexpensive touchscreen smartphones.
At Mozilla, Jay Sullivan, vice president of products at Mozilla, stated that industry has seen various attempts to launch "open" smartphone operating systems, with little success and these were non-successful as they were designed "by committee," with too many constituents to please. While developing and supporting the Firefox browser, Mozilla has learned to develop large-scale "open" projects effectively.
He also stated that, on Firefox phones, putting quality third-party applications will be easy as they're based on HTML 5, an emerging standard for Web applications.
