Firefox OS developer phones

In a post a few weeks ago, I discussed the impending arrival of a slew of mobile phones based on Firefox OS and Ubuntu, and we've seen a few of these show up now, like the Firefox OS phones seen here. There are many concrete signs that we are going to see heavy competition among open mobile operating systems this year. But we aren't just going to see phones based on them.

Many people are excited about Ubuntu Touch, which Canonical has delivered in a tablet version.
