Jolie O'Dell / VentureBeatHome screen on Firefox OS Nov. 12 - 13, 2013 San Francisco, CA Tickets On Sale Now When web-based mobile operating system Firefox OS first launched, it was definitely a rough draft. But Mozilla, as always, is quick to smooth rough edges and add polish, even as its latest project expands into more markets around the world. Today, the foundation is announcing new geographies and a new version: Firefox OS 1.1. With the new OS version, you’ll now be able to send MMS pics, audio, and videos. There’s also a new API for push notifications and enhancements to the Contacts, Calendar, and Email apps. The OS has gotten some overall speed and performance boosts, as well. Check out more improvements and details on the Mozilla blog. Another exciting update is the addition of new markets to the Firefox OS map. Now, Mozilla’s carrier partners are bringing Firefox OS devices to Brazil and other parts of Central and South America, Serbia, Montenegro, Greece, Hungary, and other locations around the world. Telefónica’s open web devices director, Yotam Ben-Ami, said in a statement on the news, “These first launches of Firefox OS in Spain, Colombia and Venezuela have surpassed our expectations demonstrating a strong consumer appetite for a great value and open smartphone offer. We now look forward to bringing the benefits of Firefox OS to our customers in Brazil and three other Latin America markets during Q4 2013 as well as making it available through many more Telefónica operating businesses during 2014.” Also, Deutsche Telekon CPO Thomas Kiessling said, “Deutsche Telekom’s launch of the first Firefox OS smartphone in Poland is very successful. We are really pushing the device to all T-Mobile Poland’s points of sale and experience that people are absolutely keen on exploring the possibilities of the new operating system. We are now excited about the upcoming sales start for our congstar customers in Germany. And we will bring the first devices to Greece and Hungary soon.” Of course, the very existence of Firefox OS fans the already heated debate over web technologies on phones versus native applications. Our upcoming DevBeat conference, Nov. 12-13 in San Francisco, will have a lot more on this topic. It’s a hands-on developer event packed with master classes, presentations, Q&As, and hackathons, all aimed at boosting your code skills, security knowledge, hardware hacking, and career development. Register now. VentureBeat is creating an index of the most exciting cloud-based services for developers. Take a look at our initial suggestions and complete the survey to help us build a definitive index.

Firefox OS, Mozilla’s mobile OS alternative to Android and iOS, launched in select European and South American markets earlier this year. It’s been a little too quiet on the Firefox OS front since then, but Mozilla and its hardware partners are starting to stir once again. Mozilla announced today that it and its hardware partners are preparing to launch Firefox OS in even more South American countries, including Brazil. Currently, Firefox OS devices are only available in Colombia and Venezuela through Telefonica. “These first launches of Firefox OS in Spain, Colombia and Venezuela have surpassed our expectations demonstrating a strong consumer appetite for a great value and open smartphone offer,” said Yotam Ben-Ami, Director of Open Web Devices at Telefonica. “We now look forward to bringing the benefits of Firefox OS to our customers in Brazil and three other Latin America markets during Q4 2013 as well as making it available through many more Telefónica operating businesses during 2014.” Telefonica may operate in Spain, but what about the rest of Europe. Mobile carrier Deutsche Telecom says that it plans to expand upon its successful launch in Poland with more launches in Germany, Greece and Hungary. Mozilla also announced a new partner in Telenor – a Norway-based telecom company. The carrier will launch Firefox OS devices in Hungary, Serbia and Montenegro before the end of the year. Of course, Mozilla won’t be simply resting on its laurels as more Firefox OS devices make their way into the hands of more people. The company announced today that it’s pushing out version 1.1 of Firefox OS today. This update adds MMS messaging and a variety of performance improvements. Mozilla CEO Jay Sullivan says the latest update to Firefox OS is all about delivering the best product to people who may be buying their very first smartphone: “The positive market reception of the first Firefox OS smartphones demonstrates that people like the user experience and openness we’re building with Firefox OS,” said Jay Sullivan, Mozilla Chief Operating Officer. “We continue to enhance Firefox OS to deliver the best experience for the many people around the world buying their first smartphones. We are looking forward to seeing the response to the next round of Firefox OS launches.” While there’s still no word on a U.S. launch for Firefox OS, ZTE confirmed last month that its Firefox OS device would be launching in the states next year. If you’re super impatient, you can get one through eBay right now. [Image: ZTE]

iPhone 5s Arriving in Over 50 More Countries Starting Later This Month is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.Starting later this month, Apple will be launching the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in over 50 more countries, including Italy, Russia and Spain, with several more countries getting the new devices at the beginning of November, including India and Mexico. This will be the first big post-launch release of the new iPhones since they were initially launched last month on September 20. On October 25, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will arrive in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French West Indies, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Island, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and Thailand. On November 1, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will launch in Albania, Armenia, Bahrain, Colombia, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, India, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and UAE. This will put Apple in line for reaching its target of 100 countries by the end of the year. Currently, both new iPhones are available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK. This expansion of iPhone availability certainly isn’t surprising, and the timeline is comparable to last year’s rollout of the iPhone 5. Apple hasn’t announced pricing for the new iPhones in these additional countries, so you’ll have to check with your local Apple store in your country to find out how much a new iPhone will cost you. In the US, the iPhone 5s starts at $199, with the iPhone 5c starting at $99 when you sign a new two-year contract. However, if you’re okay with buying the new devices from a third-party, many retailers and carriers are discounting the new iPhones, with the iPhone 5c getting the most attention. Best Buy, RadioShack and Walmart have all chopped $50 off the price of the iPhone 5c, letting customers get the new phone for as low as $45; that’s pocket change to a lot of consumers. During opening weekend alone, Apple claims to have sold nine million iPhones during the three-day period, almost doubling sales of the iPhone 5. Of course, there are two new iPhones this time around, and Apple hasn’t disclosed which model sold how many units, and we’ll most likely never know officially. However, many analysts are arguing that these numbers are inflated, saying that Apple is counting the units that were shipped to retailers and carrier stores, but perhaps weren’t actually sold to consumers. Nonetheless, more people will be able to get a hold of the new iPhones come later this month, resulting in even more sales for the Cupertino-based company. It’ll be making its quarterly earnings call on October 28, but we’re not sure if the company will include sales of the October 25 launch.iPhone 5s Arriving in Over 50 More Countries Starting Later This Month is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.
