After a long reign of iOS and Android based mobile devices, it seems that other contenders are finally entering the arena. Among these is Canonical’s Ubuntu Phone and Tablet OS as well as the Mozilla team’s Firefox OS meant for mobile devices. Now, Sony has expressed interest in Mozilla team’s offering and intends to launch a Firefox OS mobile device by 2014.


Firefox OS

Sony hasn’t had much traction in the smartphone or tablet arena so far. The company has mostly relied on Android to gain the market share but in that space, Samsung remains the undisputed king. The recent tablet offerings by Sony at MWC 2013 do seem quite attractive and there’s the possibility that the company may finally gain a good foothold in the market.

However, Sony apparently wants to explore other options. And has now stated that it is closely working with the Mozilla team to bring out a Sony mobile device running Firefox OS. This is yet another win for the Mozilla team which has been able to woo a whole lot of companies so far, including Huawei, LG, ZTE and Alcatel.

At the same time, Samsung has put down its foot and stated that it has no interest in the Firefox OS. In other words, the Firefox OS is still up for the taking and whichever vendor is able to dish out an enticing enough mobile device running the OS may be able to take the lead on this front.

The Mozilla team is fairly optimistic that their new offering will be a success. According to them, since Firefox OS is essentially an HTML5 platform, it would be much easier for the developers to create apps for it. If that turns out to be true, that can go a long way in making Firefox OS a success.
