But to achieve that, Mozilla has to convince the hardware manufacturers to add support for updates over WiFi.

It looks like Firefox OS is doing quite well. For now, we know for sure that 2014 will bring ZTE Open C and ZTE Open II, the next two Firefox OS based smartphones developed by the Chinese manufacturer, Geeksphone Revolution, and a bunch of new Firefox OS devices from Alcatel: the Alcatel One Touch Fire C, Alcatel One Touch Fire E, Alcatel One Touch Fire S, Alcatel One Touch Fire 7 and Alcatel One Touch POP.

For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geeksphone.

While Firefox OS has been experimentally ported to the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Also, the InFocus F1 tablet running Firefox OS has been spotted at FCC.
