Mozilla, taking its first foray into the mobile business, will begin rolling out its new Firefox OS this summer.
Firefox OS is a smartphone operating system developed by Mozilla that runs entirely on HTML 5, the latest and most advanced programming language for Web browsers.
The nonprofit organization known for its Web browser said Firefox OS will first launch in Brazil, Colombia, Hungary, Mexico, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, Spain and Venezuela. It did not say when it could come to the U.S.
Mozilla said it is working with LG, Huawei, Alcatel, and ZTE to build smartphones running Firefox OS. Separately, Sony announced that it is exploring the development of Firefox OS smartphones in partnership with Spain's Telefonica.
