    After a few months with developer preview phones and then getting 18 carriers interested in the fledging mobile platform, the first Mozilla Firefox OS phones are ready to ship to consumers...

    It's what conxumers buy, obviously...

    Seriously, though, the article should get a 0.2 revision, since the typo is right in the title, IMHO.

    It's a subtle type of typpo.
    Just like the main-in-the middle.
    It usually gets a fix, but it depends on how much humour it drives. The more the faster.
    This very one has almost none so it's set to stay here forever.

    I'm also looking forward for Firefox OS and all the html5/css/javascript coding goodies. I guess this mobile operating system will impulse much more further the combination of the mentioned trio for developing applications, and that can just only make good to the ecosystem by opening much further the mobile environment. If they have success as happened with the web browser back in the days, other companies will follow and we will be able to code once and run on all platforms with little to no modifications.

    Thanks to Mozilla the web ecosystem improved, they where the firsts to make a decent web browser (and now many people throws rocks at them in favor of spyware chrome, it seems that been ungrateful is a trend), and still it is the best browser out there with all the improvements they have worked on.

    They have done many advances on improving the rendering performance, JavaScript Jit as WebGL, they have basically pioneered web standards. This isn't going to be a childs play platform as many think and I'm rooting for them to reach the entire world.

    Firefox OS is pretty nice, although I'm still looking forward to Sailfish/Mer more.

    Same here. Although Firefox phones will probably be more in my price range... I'm hoping Jolla releases a more affordable phone, down the line.
