Samsung says 'no' to Firefox OS While other notable smartphone makers have already signed on, Samsung will be passing on Mozilla's Firefox OS.
Speaking during the Mobile World Congress event, the company noted that it will not be creating a Firefox OS device in the future.

Mozilla has already partnered with LG, Alcatel, ZTE, Huawei, Geeksphone and most recently Sony on the hardware side. On the carrier side, the company has partnered with Latin American giant Telefonica, the U.S.' Sprint, European giant Deutsche Telekom and 14 other smaller carriers.

Each of the upcoming devices will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and generally include low-end specs aimed at budget-conscious consumers.

The first phones will be available starting in May in Brazil, Colombia, Hungary, Mexico, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, Spain and Venezuela.

Good to hear!!!

And not for the reason you think i like the idea of mozilla firefox o.s but samsung is known for quality not garbage they use android because android is popular and easy to produce devices for and it makes phones cheaper to the average consumer think about a smart phone for $100.00 versus a mozilla device at $150.00 to $200.00 i'll take the $100.00
