Mozilla Doesn't Plan To Launch The Firefox Phone In Western Countries

Mozilla Doesn't Plan to Launch the Firefox Phone in the US

Bad news if you've had your heart set on a Mozilla phone ever since the Firefox handsets were announced: the company has admitted that it currently has no plans to launch the device in developed markets such as the US and Australia.

Speaking to CNET, Mozilla exec Mitchell Baker explained that the company's focus is on marketing the device to developing nations — a sector largely ignored by the likes of Apple and Google. That's a great initiative, but it's annoying for those who fancied a quirky alternative to iOS or Android.

If you're really desperate, handsets have sold to developers in the past — so if you scour eBay or the like, you might just be able to find one. [CNET]
