Moziila will have support from mobile operators Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica and Telenor, who will introduce these smartphones in their offer.

“Mapping to key Firefox footprints around the globe, leading operators Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica and Telenor are backing the open Firefox OS as an exciting new entrant to the smartphone marketplace.”

Mozilla also announced that Télefonica is expected to launch the first devices in Brazil in early 2013.
