Developer Firefox OS Phones Sell Out Within Hours
On Tuesday, developer versions of the first two Firefox OS smartphones--the Keon and the Peak--went up for sale through Geeksphone. The initial stock of each sold out within hours, although Geeksphone expected to have more of the devices available soon.
Currently, Geeksphone is the only place mobile development firms can buy smartphones based on the Firefox OS. Many developers were eager to get their hands on the phones in order to start creating and testing apps for the new mobile platform. Consumer devices based on Firefox OS are expected to be launched in 2014.
