Mozilla set to push its low-cost Firefox OS smartphones into the Asia-Pacific region

Mozilla has announced a major push into the Asia-Pacific region for its low-cost Firefox OS smartphone platform, while reiterating its commitment to smart TVs and a ChromeCast-style streaming device.

In a statement on its official blog, Mozilla announced Taiwanese telco Chunghwa Telecom is set to launch the devices, while carriers Spice and Intex are set to launch the devices in India.

The platform’s footprint is also expanding into developed markets, with an announcement Telefónica will begin distributing the devices in Germany and ZTE launching in France.

Mozilla is also continuing development work on its smart TV project with Panasonic, which it originally announced at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year.

In total, the company claims its smartphones are now available through five major operators in 15 countries, although Australia continues to miss out.

Meanwhile, Mozilla has also revealed a company called aBitCool is partnering to manufacture its forthcoming Chromecast-style HDMI stick, which it claims will be released “later this year”.
