It is obvious for now that there will be more Firefox OS smart phones in future on the global scene, as Mozilla Inc. and its partners are providing a near-steady stream of product launches for some devices similar to the ZTE Open and the Alcatel One Touch Fire.

Firefox OS smart phones from Mozilla have already seen some successful launches in countries like Spain, Venezuela and Colombia from provider Telefónica. The Deutsche Telecom in Poland served Firefox OS phones and they were successful enough that both providers now want to keep the Firefox OS juices flowing in their market.

While no specific release dates were mentioned in the official Mozilla's blog announcement about their new phone launches, some statements from Telefónica and Deutsche Telecom has put some pins on the release map. The Director of Open Web Devices at the operator Telefónica said they are now looking forward to bring the benefits of Firefox OS to their customers in Brazil and also, three other Latin America markets during the Q4 of 2013 as well as making it available through many more Telefónica operating businesses during the year 2014.

Thomas Kiessling, the Chief Product and Innovation Officer at another operator Deutsche Telecom, said they had other markets to announce and they are now very much excited about their upcoming sales start for their customers in Germany. And he also said that they are going to bring the first Firefox OS device to Greece and Hungary soon.

And now, a third mobile provider named Telenor is expecting to launch Firefox OS mobiles in Hungary, Montenegro, and Serbia by the end of this year.

The new Firefox OS is not yet making a dent in the global market share numbers, but the surprising continued investment by Telefónica and Deutsche Telecom means that there is definitely some success happening with this mobile platform. Firefox OS is now fitting a niche for customers who desire smart phone capabilities without the usual high costs. And their browser-centric interface is also reportedly appealing as well. Let’s see what happens in future.
