At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Mozilla announced that seventeen wireless carriers have committed to releasing smartphones based on Mozilla's Firefox OS. The carriers, which are located throughout the world, include América Móvil, China Unicom, Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Hutchison Three Group, KDDI, KT, MegaFon, Qtel, SingTel, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia Group, Telefónica, Telenor, TMN and VimpelCom. In addition, four manufacturers — Alcatel (TCL), LG, ZTE and Huawei — have committed to building the necessary hardware.

Firefox leverages the same Linux core as Android. However, it emphasizes apps built with Web technologies like HTML5 and JavaScript. “We have very fast platform because we don't need the extra layers,” explained Mozilla CTO Brendan Eich.
