ZTE, one of the Top 5 mobile handset makers in the world, has announced that sales of the ZTE Open Firefox OS Phone will commence soon on the ZTE store on eBay US and UK. The ZTE Open will be available  for the first time in orange, priced at $79.99, and unlocked for all networks.

For the uninitiated, Firefox OS is a new open operating system for smartphones, developed by Mozilla. The OS is built entirely using HTML5 and open web standards, free from restrictions from proprietary platforms. It is the only operating system with Adaptive App Search, a feature Mozilla touts as the differentiator to other OSes. With Adaptive App Search, the device adapts to the user’s changing needs.

17 operators around the globe have committed to distributing Firefox OS devices; and currently the ZTE Open joins the Alcatel One Touch as the pioneering Firefox OS devices. More will be coming over the next few weeks.

Firefox OS is currently available in Spanish, Polish and English.

The ZTE Open offers all functions expected from a smartphone including calls, messaging, email, camera and social media integration. Location-based services like Nokia HERE maps are built-in. Some applications already available on the Firefox Marketplace include eBay, The Weather Channel, CNNMoney, Huffington Post, TIME, Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud.

The ZTE Open is also currently ranged by Telefónica in Spain and Venezuela in blue and in Colombia in black.

The coming of Firefox OS begs the question – Is there space in the mobile industry for yet another mobile OS?
