Mozilla Showcases First Year of Success with Firefox OS at Mobile World Congress 2014

The only independent smartphone OS to launch in multiple countries will demonstrate the next generation of its HTML5-based platform.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mozilla is pleased to confirm it will be attending, exhibiting and speaking at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This year Firefox OS will take its place in Hall 3 of the Fira Gran Via, alongside major operators and device manufacturers.

Firefox OS returns to Mobile World Congress after celebrating launches in 14 markets in Latin America and Europe, with four operators and three handset manufacturers.

The advantage of Firefox OS is that it is built to completely open Web standards. With this it has garnered significant industry support since it was introduced at MWC 2013. Devices have quickly commanded market share in Latin America and gone on sale in 14 markets including nine in Europe, with four operators and three handset manufacturers. Its flexibility allows for easy customization to meet the unique needs of a localized customer base who are ready to move from feature phones to smartphones.

Mozilla will also be demonstrating the latest builds of the following products at stand 3C30 in Hall 3:

  • Firefox Marketplace: An open environment combining top tier and hyper-local apps that leverages the scale of the Web for users and developers
  • Firefox for Android:  A customizable solution for integration with 3rd party services, partner distribution and connecting with other people and devices

Schedule of Events:
In addition to demonstrating the current releases of Firefox OS hardware, on devices from ZTE, TCL, and LG, Mozilla also will have advance previews of the next Firefox OS user experience for smartphones. Mozilla and its content publishing partners (including LINE, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Napster, Aviary, Soundcloud, Pinterest and Evernav) will demonstrate the HTML5 apps that deliver the content and performance that users expect from a smartphone device. Away from the stand, Mozilla will participate at the following events:

'The Future of Voice'

Date: Wednesday, 26th February, 14:00-15:30 CET
Location: Auditorium 2

'Mobile and Privacy: Building Trust Through Transparency, Choice and Control' Seminar
Mozilla Chief Privacy Officer Alex Fowler will contribute to a seminar discussing the role of mobile OS in providing privacy choices, the emergence of app privacy regulation and what it means for business, and location analytics and privacy.
