Mozilla & Gecko clones "It's no secret that Mozilla has been working on a mobile OS. Previously codenamed Boot2Gecko, the project focused on a purely HTML5 based system that worked in many ways like current mobile devices. As the project grew into Mozilla OS, the company has laid out a partnership with ZTE that will have real world devices in certain markets early next year. Testing for this OS had previously consisted of a compiled ROM that would be flashed over a handful of Android devices. Now, Mozilla has moved into full fledged product evaluation mode with their own custom developer phone." Looks decent - and a better solution for testers and developers than custom ROMs.

I think the article is trying to explain that Mozilla has its own developer phone, so they have given it an ad hoc name, (Mozilla OS developer phone) because it hasn't been officially announced. The OS is still Firefox OS. They are just explaining that they are using ZTE phones instead of booting ROMs on android phones that have nothing to do with the project.
