Mozilla, which is well known for its very popular web browser called Firefox is now expanding its boundaries to include the rapidly growing smartphone segment and has recently launched two mobiles running on the newly developed Firefox Mobile OS. The company has joined hands with Spanish firm Geeksphone in partnership with Telefonica for the development of handsets and will be released for developer preview in the month of February.
Firefox OS is a latest mobile operating system developed by Mozilla and is built entirely using open web standards. Mozilla has used HTML5 for the development of OS and it is designed in a way to make basic activities expected from a mobile such as make the phone vibrate, make a phone call or send a text message.
The two models being released are Keon and Peak and both the models incubate the latest specifications expected from a basic Smartphone.
Have a look at the specifications of both the models below:
The mobile is currently being released as developer phones and is aimed for developers who can work on the apps designed for Firefox OS.
In order to promote the OS, Mozilla has also organized Firefox OS App Days, which is a worldwide set of 20+ hack days happening this week. The event provides an opportunity to the developers to learn, hack, share and celebrate Firefox OS, Mozilla’s open source operating system for the mobile web.
