Mozilla has announced a partnership with Telefonica and Qualcomm, which will bring Mozilla's Boot to Gecko HTML5-based mobile interface to devices later his year. This is a huge boon for the fully open source environment.

Okay, maybe they did get to be the third biggest telco in the world by being fabulous... but I'm sure a couple of acquisitions here and there played a part:

And, if you look at the dates of most of these acquisitions, a big part of their subscribers (largely in ~developing countries after all), quite likely strong majority of mobile subscribers, were amassed by Telefónica after the purchases.
