LG and Mozilla working on Firefox phone for developers

Posted on Friday, February 24 2012 @ 14:20:54 CET by

ExtremeTech reports Mozilla partnered up with LG to make a developer-oriented cell phone. The smartphone will primarily serve as a test vehicle for Mozilla's Boot to Gecko (B2G) smartphone and tablet operating system.
For Boot to Gecko to succeed it must have apps, and to create apps you need developers. That’s why, at MWC — according to a source close to the matter — Mozilla will also be announcing that it has partnered up with LG to make a developer-oriented mobile device. Our source couldn’t confirm the specs or the price, but with MWC around the corner we should know soon. Availability-wise, it’s possible that the LG device will go on sale next week, but considering how nascent B2G is — it will probably be usable by the middle of 2012 — it’s important to stress that this is very much a developer device.

Boot to Gecko, dialerConsumers will get their first taste of the Marketplace in Firefox 13, which will feature an app launcher as part of the long-waited Home Tab app launcher. Firefox 13 will be released at the beginning of June, giving developers plenty of time to build apps for both the ‘Fox and B2G.
