Mozilla's press release reveals
that Alcatel, LG and ZTE will all launch smartphones that will use Firefox OS - Huawei is also coming, but sometime later - and it has secured 17 wireless operators around the world to sell those phones. Deutsche Telekom will be the first out of the gate, selling the Alcatel One Touch Fire in Poland later this summer. Other countries slated to get Firefox OS smartphones this year include Brazil, Colombia, Hungary, Mexico, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain and Venezuela. All of the Firefox smartphones will have a version of Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor as part of their hardware. In a separate press release, Mozilla offered details on the Firefox Marketplace, which will give owners of Firefox OS phones a way to download and/or purchase HTML5-based apps.
