In the past day you may have seen some tweets or news articles about Mozilla’s plan to stop offering Firefox OS smartphones through carrier channels.
While it is true that carrier partnerships are ending, Firefox OS as a platform is very much alive. We will use it to explore and prototype many more use cases with a new focus on connected devices, and it will be a true open source project with community involvement reimagined and even more heavily invested in.
Ari Jaaksi blogged today about this here.
As Foxfooders we want to make it clear to you that Foxfooding will continue and remains as a crucial method for getting feedback, testing and strengthening the OS.
We’ll share more on our work and new experiments across connected devices as it progresses, and we are excited about the opportunities and challenges ahead of us.
