    Mozilla’s attempt at a mobile OS has been a long time in the works. The open source smartphone and tablet operating system first began back in 2011, since which the Mozilla team has regularly kept us posted with various updates and info. An appearance at CES on an unspecified smartphones, followed by the release of a couple of developer handsets late last month has certainly heightened general interest, and those keen to get started with Firefox OS may only have a short wait left. According to a press release, the European market will see the first smartphone running Mozilla’s new OS via the Alcatel One Touch, which will first arrive in Poland venturing west across mainland Europe.

    Mozilla hasn’t offered any details as to when the device will land in Poland, let alone when it will begin to trickle across the rest of Europe, but the news is certainly encouraging. In the same year Canonical’s Ubuntu is attempting to make an impression on the smartphone and tablet game with its own mobile versions, this could well be the year of the open source mobile OS, and like Ubuntu, Mozilla / Firefox has a strong enough desktop presence to secure an active developer and early-adopting user base.
