Mozilla do not want to give up on its Firefox OS despite the market dominance of iOS and Android and the emergence of Windows Phone after Nokia acquisition. Mozilla has tied up with low-end low cost handset makers in India to bring smartphones under $25 or Rs. 2000. The handsets are to be released within few months and no expected date is yet announced.
These handsets will target the Indian and Chinese market and are basically targeting people who can't afford a high end Android device. Mozilla chief operating officer Li Gong has confirmed the tie ups and added that these under $25 handsets will provide a momentum to the growing market of Firefox OS.
