On this week’s Friday Debate the question is – Which new operating system has the best chance of catching on?
At a roundtable briefing in Tokyo today, Sony discussed how it plans to overtake Hauwei, and claim the spot just behind Samsung and Apple as the world’s third largest manufacturer.
At MWC, Darcy got to talk with a spokesman for Mozilla Foundation, who was kind enough to give us a demo of Firefox OS running on a ZTE device.
Sony has posted up an experimental Firefox OS build for Xperia E owners to test out on its Mobile Developer Blog. The ROM, unfortunately, can not serve as a daily driver in its current state though.
Alcatel, ZTE, Huawei and LG have been announced as the first Mozilla partners, with a fifth name confirmed earlier today – Sony.
Mozilla has outed a new preview video of Firefox OS on phones to show off a few software niceties ahead of the official release date in 2014.
Whereas other phone makers tend to keep mum about their upcoming devices, ZTE just cannot hold back its excitement to reveal its new Firefox OS smartphone.
With a few operating systems on offer for your mobile device, do you need more options to consider? Will any of the new crop be able to challenge Android?
ZTE is preparing to launch its Firefox OS powered smartphone in Europe later this year. Could this handset spark a new war for control over the budget smartphone market?
According to a recent report, Mozilla’s Firefox OS should only expect to see around 1 percent of the global smartphone OS market, compared to Android’s 67 percent. The report says it could take as long as two years to turn this around, so should Google worry about Firefox OS at all, or turn their focus on other competitors?
