Mozilla CEO expects Firefox OS phones for US in 2014
Mozilla’s chief executive Gary Kovacs has just unveiled an important partnership with LG and three more phone makers that will introduce own Firefox OS-based phones, and in a Q&A session after the event said he expects the first Firefox phones to come to the United States “somewhere in the 2014 timeframe.”

That will come after the first wave of Firefox phones hits Europe around the Summer of this year. Firefox will obviously try to launch in places where Android and iOS haven’t yet developed a strong grip on the market, and that’s a challenging task.

Kovacs hasn’t yet announced which carriers will get the Firefox phones in the States, but judging from the fact that Sprint was one of the special guests at the event, we guess it’d be the Now Network.

I don't see any of the big carriers adding the Firefox OS to their lineup, but may small/prepaid carriers.

what if the US citizens get fed up with the government protecting the rich (Google, Apple... other big stock market companies) by 2014 and their software loses popularity. small trust worthy ones could rise.
