Firefox OS Based Phone Coming In June To Nine Countries

Firefox OS Based Phone Coming  In June To Nine CountriesMozilla will begin selling smartphones running its new mobile operating system this June in nine countries across Continents according to Mozilla CEO Gary Kovacs speaking at AllThingsD’s Dive Into Mobile conference on Monday.

“We haven’t done a great job [on mobile browsing]. I’m expecting someone will do a Apple on the whole browsing experience,” said   Kovacs.

“We plan to launch in five countries in June and 11 more by the end of the year,” Kovacs said. “We plan to hit Venezuela, Poland, Brazil, Portugal and Spain. … We’ll hit the U.S. in 2014.”

“In Silicon Valley we tend to see the world through high-end devices,” Kovacs said. “But that’s not true in the rest of the world. So in the short term, we’re launching in emerging markets where Firefox is particularly strong. … It didn’t make sense for us to launch a version-one device around the world.”
