LG building Firefox smartphones LG has confirmed that it will be launching phones this year that run on the Mozilla Firefox mobile operating system.
The phones will launch in the South American nations of Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela as well as in Spain.

Additionally, the company will expand its launch to Hungary, Mexico, Serbia, Montenegro and Poland during the Q4 2013 and Q1 2014.

The company was quick to note, however, that "LG's planned launch of Firefox phones is a means to meet diversifying consumer needs but this doesn't indicate any shift away from Android."

ZTE and Huawei have also announced Firefox phones, but major player Samsung has already stated they will not be building phones with the OS.

They should seriously consider launching it in India which is the fastest growing market in the world.
