ZTE will unveil at MWC a Smartphone running Firefox OS

The press release we received leaves no room for doubt: the Chinese manufacturer ZTE during MWC will unveil two important novelties. The first is the Grand ZTE Memo which we mentioned in a previous article. The second is more original: it is a smartphone running Firefox OS that should be called the ZTE Mozilla.

All these innovations will be presented during the ZTE press conference that will take place on Monday, February 25 from 16h. You can count on us for the coverage! In principle, terminals that will host this OS will be positioned at entry level with very competitive prices, and will be a credible alternative to the dominant mobile OS market.

All this, is really just the confirmation of what has been announced by Mozilla in July 2012: at that time, and while Firefox OS (which, remember, is based on the HTML5) was only in its infancy, Mozilla already stated that the OS supports benefited from several telecom operators in North America and Europe, as well as two manufacturers that are ZTE and TCL (which markets the Alcatel One Touch). We can imagine that the main aim of all these actors is to reduce their dependence on Google and its Android OS, which represents a more dominant sales.
