Orange to bring Firefox OS to 13 new markets in Africa and Middle East; Mozilla, KDDI, LG U+, Telefónica and Verizon collaborate on new category of phones based on Firefox OS

Barcelona, Spain – Mobile World Congress – March 1st, 2015 – Mozilla, the mission-based organization dedicated to keeping the power of the Web in people’s hands, welcomed new partners and devices to the Firefox OS ecosystem at an event in Barcelona, leading into Mobile World Congress.

Mozilla President Li Gong summarized the status of Firefox OS, which currently scales across devices ranging from the world’s most affordable smartphone to 4K Ultra HD TVs. “Two years ago Firefox OS was a promise. At MWC 2014, we were able to show that Firefox OS scales across price ranges and form factors. Today, at MWC 2015, we celebrate dozens of successful device launches across continents, adoption of Firefox OS beyond mobile, as well as growing interest and innovation around the only truly open mobile platform. Also, we are proud to report that three major chip vendors contribute to the Firefox OS ecosystem.”

Firefox OS MWC 2015 News in Detail:

•    Mozilla, KDDI, LG U+, Telefonica and Verizon Wireless collaborate to create a new category of intuitive and easy to use Firefox OS phones: The companies are collaborating to contribute to the Mozilla community and create a new range of Firefox OS phones for a 2016 launch in various form factors – flips, sliders and slates – that balance the simplicity of a basic phone (calls, texts) with the more advanced features of a smartphone such as fun applications, content, navigation, music players, camera, video, LTE, VoLTE, email and Web browsing. For more details and supporting quotes see blog.mozilla.org.

•    Orange announces bringing Firefox OS to 13 markets as part of a new digital offer: Today, Orange puts the mobile Internet within reach of millions more people, otherwise not previously addressed, with the launch of a new breakthrough digital offer across its significant African and Middle Eastern footprint. The Orange Klif digital offer starts from under US$40 (€35), inclusive of data, voice and text bundle and sets a new benchmark in price that will act as a major catalyst for smartphone and data adoption across the region. The 3G Firefox OS smartphone is exclusive to Orange and will be available from Q2 in 13 of Orange’s markets in the region, including, but not limited to, Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia, Cameroon, Botswana, Madagascar, Mali, The Ivory Coast, Jordan, Niger, Kenya, Mauritius and Vanuatu.

We are excited that the ACE, which keeps gaining positive feedback in the market, is helping lots of consumers move from feature phones to smartphones. Through the close partnership with Mozilla Firefox OS, we will continue to bring more affordable quality mobile devices to consumers,” said Maynard Ngu, Cherry Mobile CEO.

New range of intuitive and easy-to-use phones to be powered by Firefox OS

Barcelona, Spain – Mobile World Congress – March 1, 2015
Mozilla, the mission based organization dedicated to keeping the power of the Web in people’s hands, together with KDDI, LG U+, Telefónica and Verizon Wireless, today announced at Mobile World Congress a new initiative to create devices based on Firefox OS.

The goal of this initiative is to create a more intuitive and easy-to-use experience (powered by Firefox OS) for consumers around the world. The companies are collaborating to contribute to the Mozilla community and create a new range of Firefox OS phones for a 2016 launch in various form factors – flips, sliders and slates – that balance the simplicity of a basic phone (calls, texts) with the more advanced features of a smartphone such as fun applications, content, navigation, music players, camera, video, LTE, VoLTE, email and Web browsing.

Firefox OS was chosen as the platform for this initiative because it unlocks the mobile ecosystem and enables independence and innovation. This results in more flexibility for network operators and hardware manufacturers to provide a differentiated experience and explore new business ventures, while users get the performance, personalization and affordability they want packaged in a beautiful, clean and easy-to-use experience.

“By leveraging Firefox OS and the power of the Web, we are re-imagining and providing a modern platform for entry-level phones, said Li Gong, President of Mozilla. “We’re excited to work with operator partners like KDDI, LG U+, Telefonica and Verizon Wireless to reach new audiences in both emerging and developed markets and offer customers differentiated services.”

Yasuhide Yamamoto, Vice President, Product Sector at KDDI said “We have been gaining high attention from the market with Fx0, a high tier LTE based Firefox OS smartphone launched last December, and we have faith in the unlimited potential of Firefox OS. KDDI has been very competitive in the Japanese mature mobile phone market for decades, so we are confident that we can contribute to the Mozilla community in developing this new concept product.”

“Telefónica is actively supporting Firefox OS, aligned with our strategy of bringing more options and more openness to our customers. Firefox OS smartphones are currently offered in 14 markets across our footprint and are helping to bring connectivity to more people who are looking for a reliable and simple user experience at affordable prices,” said Francisco Montalvo, Director, Telefónica Group Devices Unit.

Rosemary McNally, Vice President, Device Technology at Verizon said “Verizon aims to deliver innovative new products to its customers, and this initiative is about creating a modern, simple and smart platform for basic phones. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with Mozilla and other service providers to leverage the power of Firefox OS and the Web community.”

The Mozilla Blog: Webmaker App Takes Fresh Approach to Digital Literacy

Mozilla planet - zo, 01/03/2015 - 08:00

Tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Mozilla will release an open beta of the Webmaker app: a free, independent web publishing tool. This is an important next step in Mozilla’s effort to dramatically increase digital literacy around the world.

The Webmaker app emerged from a year of research in Bangladesh, India and Kenya. The research pointed to two things: new smartphone users face a steep learning curve, often limiting themselves to basic apps like Facebook and not even knowing they are on the Internet; and users yearn for — and can benefit greatly from — the ability to create local, relevant content.

Webmaker app is designed to address these needs by making it possible for anyone to quickly publish a website or an app from the moment they turn on their first smartphone. Students can build a digital bulletin board for their peers, teachers can create and distribute lesson plans, and merchants can produce websites to promote their products.

The idea is to get new smartphone users making things quickly when they get online — and then to help them do more sophisticated things over time. This ‘make first’ approach to digital literacy encourages people to see themselves as active creators rather than passive consumers. This mindset will be critical as billions people grapple with the question ‘how and why should I use the internet?’ for the first time over the next few years.

Webmaker app is free, open source and available in over 20 languages. Users can share their creations using a simple URL via SMS, Facebook, WhatsApp and more. Content created in Webmaker will load in any mobile web browser. The current open beta version is available for Android, Firefox OS and modern mobile browsers. A full release is planned for later this year.

Complementing the Webmaker app are Mozilla’s far-reaching, face-to-face learning programs. Our network of volunteer makers, mentors and educators operate in more than 80 countries. These volunteers — equipped with the app and other tools — run informal workshops in  schools, libraries and other public places to help people understand how the Web works and create content relevant to their everyday lives.  Last year alone, Mozilla volunteers ran 2,513 workshops across 450 cities.

All of these digital literacy activities are driven by partnerships. Mozilla partners with NGOs, mobile carriers and other global organizations to ensure our digital literacy programs reach individuals who need it most. We’re joining forces with influential partners who share our passion for an open Web, local content creation and empowered users.

When billions of first-time Web users come online, they will find a platform they can build, mold and use everyday to better their lives, businesses and education. It’s an ambitious order, but Mozilla is prepared. To participate, or learn more about our digital literacy initiatives, visit webmaker.org/localweb.
