will there ever be a firefox os phone in USA?

Posted

Heard the news that mozilla is discontinuing firefox os. Earlier I heard that there will be a firefox os phone in USA during 2016. Is that proposal now dead?

For those living under a rock, see

Assuming no firefox os phone in USA, what are your opinions about other alternative phones like ubuntu, sailfish os, tizen, webos, blackberry, etc? Are there any future there. I prefer no Android, Apple, or Microsoft.

Not likely now considering Mozilla is stopping development on Firefox OS.

A link that works http://techcrunch.com/2015/12/08/mozilla-will-stop-developing-and-selling-firefox-os-smartphones/

But then you have this http://firefoxoscentral.com/2015/12/firefox-os-is-dead-firefox-os-is-alive/ saying something different "we will stop offering Firefox OS smartphones through carrier channels" which may mean the Firefox OS being used on say some Panasonic Tv's are fine.
