Too fresh. Anyway Jolla sailfish is better. I wonder why Samsung not launch any Bada or Tizen? I can smell Firefox OS phone and Ubuntu phone will soon being a abadance project since no very strong attractive point and support base where make end user eagerly to have a change.

Can anyone explain to me what Firefox OS is?.

Is it a standalone OS like Android, Windons Phone 8, iOS, etc?... Or something that is run "on-top" of another OS like: Ubuntu OS (on top of Android)?

Firefox os is horrible. Even on my pc firefox is crashing all the time with flash websites. I think future could be Ubuntu OS on mobiles, which is plain linux, instead of android which is virtual.

Firfox OS phone might be the first smartphone for me, i like it and i like that they focus more on cheap smartphones, i hope they don't join the stupid race for larger phones, keep it small, simple and cheap, there is a huge market for this kind of phone.
