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.

Thom, are you still surprised that you don't actually own your phone? You just lease it until the carrier doesn't actually want it back.

That's not true for most people - majority of the 5+ billion mobile subscribers own their phones; and use prepaid.
