Mozilla kicked off a second round of Firefox OS launches starting in October with Deutsche Telekom's Congstar in Germany. Followed by a wave of launches in Latin America in October, Firefox OS phones have also launched in more European markets recently. Firefox OS phones are currently available from Telefónica in Spain, Colombia and Venezuela and Deutsche Telekom in Poland.
In the last few weeks, Deutsche Telekom started offering Firefox OS phones through Telekom in Hungary and COSMOTE in Greece. Earlier this year, Deutsche Telekom launched Firefox OS phones through T-Mobile in Poland.
Telenor is also a very active supporter of Firefox OS. Telenor today announced that their first Firefox OS phones went on sale in Hungary last week and sales begin in Serbia and Montenegro now. The Norway-based operator also announced plans to bring Firefox OS phones to Asia in 2014.
"The positive market reception of the first Firefox OS smartphones demonstrates that people like the user experience and openness we're building with Firefox OS," said Jay Sullivan, Mozilla Chief Operating Officer. "We continue to enhance Firefox OS to deliver the best experience for the many people around the world buying their first smartphones. We are looking forward to seeing the response to the next round of Firefox OS launches."
Firefox OS has all the things you need from a smartphone as well as the things you want like built-in social integration with Facebook and Twitter, HERE Maps with offline capabilities, and features like the Firefox Web browser, the Firefox Marketplace and much more.
Firefox OS is now available in 13 countries with more coming soon.
