Mozilla is planning to make an operating system for smartphones and tablets, and the tech community is talking a lot about this new thing as it has to compete with the strong players in this game such as Android and iOS.
Extremetech has reported that LG is the first partner of Mozilla to make developer-oriented mobile device, Boot to Gecko (B2G), which is the Mozilla’s upcoming smartphone and the OS will use Marketplace, which was announced by Mozilla on February 22. This LG device would go on sale next week and most probably be usable by the middle of 2012.
Consumers will be able to take a look at Marketplace in Firefox 13, which will be released at the beginning of June. The developers will be able to build apps for not only Firefox but also for B2G by the time.
