We are excited to announce that América Móvil has become the fifth major operator to release Firefox OS smartphones. América Móvil Alcatel ONETOUCH FIRE devices are now available throughout Mexico through Telcel. Mexico is the first country where América Móvil launches a Firefox OS device.
“With this launch, we will offer our users a new way of experiencing the possibilities that a smartphone has to offer, with affordable pricing and the experience of a Firefox OS operating system. We are certain that this partnership with ALCATEL ONETOUCH and Mozilla will continue delivering more options to our users throughout the continent,” said Marco Quatorze, Director of Value Added Services, América Móvil – Telcel.

Available in 15 markets around the world, Firefox OS delivers performance, personalization and price to entry-level and midrange smartphones. Firefox OS has all the things you need from a smartphone as well as the things you want like built-in social integration with Facebook and Twitter, HERE Maps with offline capabilities, much-loved features like the Firefox Web browser, the Firefox Marketplace and much more.
Firefox OS offers two ways to discover and utilize apps and content – the Firefox Marketplace and an adaptive app search that enables discovery and access to apps that users can instantly use once or download to keep. This innovative approach helps maximize data and storage usage. The Firefox Marketplace includes popular apps such as Cut the Rope, Pinterest, TimeOut and YouTube, and relevant local and regional apps like Chilango, CNN Expansión, CNN Mexico, Despegar.com, Easytaxi, El Universal, M3, Media Tiempo and Quien.
