Mozilla has no plans to sell consumer Firefox phones in the US


It looks like most folks in the US have a long wait ahead of them before they can take Firefox OS for a spin. Despite ZTE's plan to design a bigger and better phone for release in the country in 2014, Mozilla exec Mitchell Baker tells CNET that there are currently no plans to launch in the US just yet. Why? Well, at the OpenMobile Summit in San Francisco, Baker emphasized that the company's focused on marketing to developing nations, as it's a space largely ignored by mobile heavyweights Apple and Google. That said, several Firefox OS phones (primarily for developers) were sold stateside via eBay in the past, so we bet you can find one for sale if you're truly desperate. Just make sure to switch on your scam detector before diving into the secondary market.
