The news came from Sony Mobile after they have announced a multi-year partnership with the Spanish wireless carrier Telefonica. “At Sony Mobile we continue to evaluate innovative technologies that can help deliver the premium user experiences that Sony’s consumers expect,” said Bob Ishida, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Head of Products Business Group, Sony Mobile Communications. “Our engineers are now working with Firefox OS Mobile and HTML5, evolving technologies which show great potential. In addition, we continue to work with our operator partners, including Telefónica, on a development project with an ambition to bring a product to market in 2014.”

Looks like Mozilla is off to a good start. With Sony joining its growing list of device manufacturers like ZTE, Huawei, Alcatel and LG, Firefox OS should turn out to be very exciting.

    I hope MyPhone, Cherry Mobile and other “Pinoy” manufacturers consider Firefox OS as replacement for their dubious chinaphone software installed on low-end smartphones.

    • Gpro says:

      @red
      When it comes to Mobile Inovation?
      Please… never compare Sony to Giant LG.

      I personally suggest you better do research ……
      Mapapahiya ka lng pag pinagpilitan mo itapat ang sony sa Beteran na LG.
      everybody know Sony is a Good company too but kung ang smartphone pag uusapan? Wag baka wala pa sa kalingkingan ng LG ang Sony.
      Just sharing …

    G PRO IS UNBEATABLE.
    EVEN THE LG MID RANGER PHONES BEAT XPERIA Z IN THE BATTERY DEPARTMENT.
    LG ‘sF7 and L7 II. Has both bigger battery over the Sony’s LATEST FLAGSHIP XPERIA Z.

    LG’s Mid ranger phones PUT SONY’s XERIA Z TO A SHAME !

    Xperia Z has 2330mAh Battery vs. MID RANGER F7 and L7 II 2560 and 2460mAh. Batteries.

    Wtf Sony.

  7. Black says:

    @ red F.Y.I.

    XPERIA Z at ZL are both COPYCAT of LG Optimus G AT&T & Sprint VERSIONS.
    morethan 5months na released ang OG bago ang Z
    try to observe it

    SONY FAILED!!!

  8. Black says:

    Xperia Z

    Main disadvantage
    Low contrast display with below-par viewing angles
    Non user-replaceable battery
    13MP camera hardly any better than some competitors’ 8MP units
    Feeble loudspeaker

  9. Luke says:

    LG OptimusG PRO is the best!

  10. Sony mobile says:

    I believe that every mobile phone has its upside and downside, but Sony has comeback from 2013 and it was successful with it’s xperia z, soon it will be on top 3 list, we already know that Sony haven’t sell it’s xperia z in AT&T so it’s not fair to say that’s has already been defeated. Wait for the end of 2013 there will be changed of tide
