If they're gonna start making they're own phones they're going to want to hire some lawyers as well. You know... lawsuits n' all.

The aspect of Firefox os I'm most curious about is the high ends. Sony is rumoured to be making just that for next year. They already have a low end Xperia originally with android, but changed to Firefox os in a developer video.
