If you're a Firefox OS fan and you live in the United States, you're going to have to wait a bit longer to get your Firefox phone.

Earlier this year, Mozilla's then-CEO Gary Kovacs said at Mobile World Congress that Firefox OS phones would be coming to Sprint in 2014. At the OpenMobile Summit here Wednesday morning, Mozilla Executive Chair Mitchell Baker appeared to backtrack on that comment.

"Currently, there are no plans to launch in the US," Baker told CNET's editor-in-chief, Paul Sloan, during a fireside-style conversation in front of an audience of around 100 people. She then clarified that Mozilla will have developer phones for the US market, which it has already sold more than 1,300 of on eBay. Mozilla Backtracks Over Firefox Phones For U.S. [news.cnet.com]
