Phones running an operating system created by Firefox developers Mozilla will be launching in late 2012, according to reports.
The devices will be first released in Brazil and will be running Mozilla’s Boot to Gecko (B2G) OS according to Brazilian tech site Ztop. Brazilian carrier Telefonica Vivo will be offering the handsets to consumers but there will apparently be little difference in price between more established phones and the new Mozilla-backed unit.
There has been no information available regarding which companies will be doing the hardware for the handsets or when B2G phones will be available outside South America. The launch date has been given as late 2012 or early 2013.
