Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox OS could actually be wildly successful, no matter how underwhelming the actual phones may be. And that's because - at least for now - you're not the customer; your carrier is." I'm extremely disappointed by Firefox OS so far. There's nothing wrong with the low-end hardware we've seen during MWC, but there is something wrong with low-end hardware that can't even properly run its operating system. To make matters worse, carriers are the boss here. Terrible first impression.

Yes, it is true some operators in some countries do offer that possibility, but in most countries you end up paying more for 100% carrier free phones and many people avoid it.

Just to clarify a bit my previous comment, although I was going to Espoo on a regular basis I was actually located on Düsseldorf site.
