The First Firefox OS Based Smartphones Have Reached Albania And Kosovo

Kosovo got 11 Firefox OS based Geekphones, 7 Geekphone Peak and 4 Geekphone Keon, that will be available for rental, in order to provide a development environment for the people that want to create Firefox OS apps.

Also, 11 Geekphone units reached Albania, for the same reasons, to provide the Firefox OS developers a testing environment and to make the mobile phone operators see that they can benefit from the Firefox OS devices.

For now, Firefox OS based devices are available only in Germany, Greece and Hungary, but they will be released in other European countries as well.

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. The next Firefox OS based phone will be Huawei Ascend Y300II, which has better hardware specs than all the existing smartphones using Mozilla’s OS.  It has been also ported experimentally on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, but there are some apps that don’t work yet.
