PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless ZTE will launch a Firefox OS smartphone this year. "ZTE is seeking partnerships to offer devices with the new operating system to reduce its reliance on Google's Android, which dominates the smartphone market with a 75 percent share of shipments, according to IDC. ZTE is expanding in mobile devices and cloud computing, where sales growth is faster than its traditional equipment business." The Google-reliance thing seems to be a common theme these days. It's also partly why Samsung is looking at Tizen.

They should name it the MoFo.

Awesome. The Linux/Ubuntu phone they can call the "lube phone."

Not clear why, if so many people want Android phones, these guys decided they'll try to sell something different? Are they tired of paying Google a licensing fee or something? If the customers want Android you'd think they'd be eager to sell Android.
