Smartphones developed by the creators of the Firefox web browser are set to arrive in Europe.
Chinese phone-equipment maker ZTE is currently in talks with a
European wireless carrier to bring Mozilla's Firefox OS-powered phones to the continent.
According to reports, the phones will compete with Google's Android, but only at the lower end of the smartphone market.
Jay Sullivan, vice president of products at Mozilla, said the company was also working with equipment makers Qualcomm and TCL Communication Technology Holdings on the devices. "Interest and momentum continues to grow in Firefox OS," he told Bloomberg.
Android holds three-quarters of the share in shipments in the smartphone market, but analysts expect Firefox OS to capture 1 percent of the share of global smartphone shipments in 2013.
According to ZTE chief executive Cheng Lixin, the phones could reach the US in 2013 as well.
