Mozilla last week surprised us by announcing the launch of its new mobile OS Firefox.

Now, it appears that CEO Matthew Key, Telefonica Digital, one of the companies with which they are developing this new operating system will be cheaper and better than Android.

The first team to work with the new OS, to be called Firefox Gecko OS or boot to “cost less than $ 100 and will be released before the first quarter in Brazil.” The executive also said “we can produce the same experience with Android cheaper, or a better experience at the same price,” at a conference in London on Friday.

References to green android did not end there: at the conference spoke of “frustration” with the fragmentation of Google Play, and the fact it is not always easy or possible to get the latest updates to Android. He even mentioned a “potential monopoly” by Google.

Moreover, the executive called on other operators to join O2 English (that’s the mark of Telefónica in England), to give greater scale and importance to the Mozilla project.

Asked about the desirability of launching an operating system now, when competition from Android, iPhone OS, and Windows Phone (as distant third) is very strong, Key replied that “we do not underestimate the size of the task. There have been many new operating systems and most have failed. “

In the meantime, is expected to launch in Brazil after the teams begin shipping in the world.
