Telefonica Vivo has decided to launch Firefox Operating System smartphones in Brazil. These Firefox OS smartphones include 4-inch LG Fireweb and Alcatel Onetouch.
LG has also launched its own Firefox OS smartphone called Fireweb following the footsteps of ZTE Open. LG Fireweb is the company's first Mozilla's Firefox OS smartphone that is headed to Brazil via Telefonica Vivo. The Firefox Operating System that Telefonica Vivo is bringing to the Brazilian high tech market is already for sale in Spain, Colombia and Venezuela. In synch with Mozilla, the company will also launch the Firefox OS in Peru, Uruguay and Mexico in the coming times. The opening up of Brazilian shores to smartphones and operating systems is a landmark achievement in the annals of high technology.
The Open Source facility will also help in the evolution of the system to a more free and reliable platform for the user base. It is basically a moment of historical importance where the brand new features of the device come at an affordable price. The World Wide Web will be accessible to a whole lot of people thanks to the steps taken by Telefonica Vivo who is launching both FireFox OS phones of LG Fireweb and Alcatel Onetouch.
