“The positive market reception of the first Firefox OS smartphones demonstrates that people like the user experience and openness we’re building with Firefox OS,” said Jay Sullivan, Mozilla Chief Operating Officer. “We continue to enhance Firefox OS to deliver the best experience for the many people around the world buying their first smartphones. We are looking forward to seeing the response to the next round of Firefox OS launches.”Firefox Ships OS 1.1 Into More Markets Around The World [blog.mozilla.org]
New Firefox OS phones will have the latest version of Firefox OS (1.1), which includes many performance improvements and new features like MMS messaging. Existing Firefox OS users will be upgraded to the latest version soon.

Talk about an uphill battle! I noticed that Mozilla said "Firefox OS phones are currently available from Telefónica in Spain, Colombia and Venezuela and Deutsche Telekom in Poland" so maybe they are just going after small markets? If so, what's the point?

They are going after entry-level, first-time smartphone users and trying to capture that market.

Deutsche Telekom in Poland

I was leaving Poland's Capital in the beginning of August this year and FF OS LOGO was on top of main Transit Hub roof. Most Bus routes go via this Route to get to Chopin International Airport. Kind of gave me an Idea that this is going to be big.

The Year before, the same time, Samsung S\n Phone Ads where everywhere there too, including Airport.
