Mozilla Firefox OS smartphones will be out in India and other emerging mobile markets soon.
Alcatel One Touch Fire and the ZTE Open are some of the phones from Mozilla’s partner networks.
Firefox OS Features
Mozilla Firefox OS does not offer any significant features. Since it is an open OS, the cost of the phone will be relatively less.
Mobile phone users can see features like calls, messaging, email, camera, etc. This is in addition to Firefox OS’ built-in social features like Facebook and Twitter.
HERE Maps with offline capabilities and smart walking, driving and public transit directions, Firefox Web browser, Firefox Marketplace, etc. are the other features.
The main feature of Firefox OS — as claimed by Mozilla — is an app search that transforms the phone to meet your needs at any moment, without the need to download anything.
Mobile phone users can swipe to the right on your Firefox OS phone and start to type what you are interested in to get a whole customized phone experience based on your needs.
For instance, you can search for your favorite music artist and get results to buy your song, concert tickets or even listen to song.
Firefox Marketplace offers apps in categories like games, news and media, music and audio, business and productivity.
Firefox Marketplace includes apps such as AccuWeather, EA games like Poppit, Facebook, Nokia HERE Maps, SoundCloud, Terra, Time Out, TMZ and Twitter as well as personally tailored and local apps that will differ by region.
As mobile users already know, Firefox OS is just an extension of the Firefox desktop and mobile browsing experience. Security, privacy, customization and user control will be ensured.
