Get Firefox on your phone with Snapdragon Processors

Mar 12, 2013

Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

Firefox OS

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Processors already run many high-profile mobile operating systems – including Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. And starting later this year you will be able to find Snapdragon Processors on a new mobile ecosystem – Firefox OS.

Many of you know Firefox as a PC Web browser, but Mozilla is moving into the mobile space, announcing partnerships with 18 operators around the world.

Firefox OS smartphones are the first built entirely to open Web standards. With Firefox OS, developers can unleash the power of Snapdragon by using HTML5 to access every feature of the device -- HTML5 applications are first class citizens on FFOS, and enable developers to build using their favorite web technologies like JavaScript and CSS.

The two phones announced at Mobile World Congress that run Firefox OS were the Alcatel One Touch Fire and the ZTE Open – both powered by Snapdragon Processors. Look for more Snapdragon powered devices to be revealed as the year goes on.

Love Firefox, but have an Android phone? There is now also a Firefox app for Android.
