Mozilla continues with Firefox OS for phones now stops cooperation providers




Mozilla still continues the development of its mobile operating system Firefox OS. It announced earlier to stop the cooperation with providers, but says now continue to work with manufacturers.

One of the leaders of Mozilla said on Twitter that Mozilla will focus on developers, designers and power users with a system that focuses on the UX of smartphones. Presumably it means that Mozilla aims to flashing existing Android smartphones with Firefox OS. Last month came a Developer Preview of Firefox OS 2.5 out of the Android app, and perhaps Mozilla Firefox OS in that direction will develop further.

Mozilla said last week it would stop supplying devices to service providers. The browser maker collaborated with providers like Telefonica to peddle Firefox OS, focussing on the market for low-end smartphones. The cheapest models have price tags from under 30 euros, although there are also more expensive models. A true sales success with Firefox OS has not been there. Mozilla wanted by providers gain a large market share, but failed.

Some of the people working on Firefox OS, went to the young company Acadine, working on Firefox OS-fork H5OS. H5OS now seems much on Firefox OS, but that could be changing.

Firefox OS is made ​​for several years, and Mozilla has made ​​to stimulate the creation of apps based on open Web standards. Besides Firefox OS for smartphones, there are also versions for smart TVs, for example, Panasonic and internet-of-things-devices. There Mozilla also continues along.
