Mozilla previews Firefox OS for mobiles, coming this summer

Mozilla, the popular web browser is getting into phones. But it’s not stopping at web browsers and will be launching an entire phone operating system. 

The Firefox OS will land in a crowded environment, where many small operating systems are trying to become the "third eco-system," alongside Apple's iOS and Google's Android. Mozilla Foundation has an ally in phone companies, who are interested in seeing an alternative to Apple and Google, particularly one coming from a non-profit foundation. Thirteen phone companies around the world have committed to supporting Firefox phones. 

The first devices will be inexpensive touch screen smartphones. All the phones will run on chips supplied by San Diego-based Qualcomm Inc. According to reports, putting quality third-party applications on Firefox phones will be easy, because they're based on HTML 5, an emerging standard for Web applications. 

"Firefox OS has achieved something that no device software platform has previously managed translating an industry talking shop into a huge commitment from both carriers and hardware vendors at its commercial launch," said reports.
