/// Mozilla Looks to Entice Developers with Firefox OS Phones
Aiming to build interest among mobile programmers, Mozilla announced Tuesday that it will make available preview hardware running its Firefox OS . The two “developer preview” devices are being created in partnership with Geeksphone and Spanish carrier Telefonica. Telefonica has already said it will support the Web-based operating system on commercial devices expected later this year. “Developer preview phones will help make the mobile web more accessible to more people,” Mozilla said in a blog posting on Tuesday . “Developers are critical to the web and to Mozilla’s mission to make the web accessible to everyone.” The preview devices are unlocked and feature a Qualcomm S1 processor and 3.5-inch touch screen, among other features. Mozilla CEO Gary Kovacs will talk more about the Firefox OS project when he takes the stage at our D: Dive Into Mobile conference in April.
