Sony will release the first premium smartphone Firefox OS

A few months before Mozilla officially unveiled Firefox operating system for smartphones. The first batch turned out to be an entry-level devices. But this does not mean that the platform is not compatible with devices premium. Sony develops top-end phone based on Firefox OS, writes Computerworld citing leadership Mozilla. On plans to begin production of Firefox-phones Sony announced back in February.

Sony is known for its approach to the user and product quality. They strive to produce only the best. We are studying the possibility of creating one of these devices – the main Mozilla vice president Li Hong.

Firefox OS was among the young and as yet inexperienced in operating systems, seeking to compete with the market leaders – iOS and Android. The primary objective of Firefox is gaining the trust of smartphone users low. The first of these devices come to market in Europe and South America in July of this year.

But this does not prevent Mozilla discuss the development of high-end smartphones with different suppliers:

Low-end devices – a tool to enter the market. But this does not mean that we can not or do not want to expand. We want to build up their strength. The development of the ecosystem will take some time.

Mozilla share the optimism of Sony, LG, ZTE, Huawei and Alcatel, engaged in developing Firefox-smartphones. 18 operators have already expressed their desire to sell the device, controlled by a new operating system.

The support provided by California-based start-up, gave her the confidence that Firefox OS has all the prerequisites to become a third operating system in the smartphone market after iOS and Android.

We are fully open. We provide open source and transparent operation – says Hong.

Google also has positioned Android as a mobile platform open source. However, this is not the case. According to Gong, the backstage life of the operating system is hidden from the eyes of telecommunications companies and hardware manufacturers. They are allowed to make changes in the new version of Android just after its release.

Like it or not, they [partners Google] have to take it for granted. People see that we do not hide anything, and they liked it.

However, analysts doubt that Firefox can seriously change the situation on the market. Too late, they say. At the same time, other mobile operating systems with open source software such as Ubuntu and Tizen , continue to fight for a place under the sun, despite the predictions of experts.

Hong confident that the success of Firefox will largely depend on the support of partners. The advantage of the operating system is the language HTML5, convenient for writing Web applications. Moreover, the first Firefox-phones come to market with a competitive price.

No one believed in us from the very beginning of the project. Who needs a third one operating system? Business. We stated that we will do that. And we pulled “- summed Gong.

Release Windows Blue would be no less interesting.
