Slide1- Title

being developed by Mozilla, the non-profit organization best known for the Firefox web browser.
Based on linux nd Mozilla’s gecko technology
Web is the platform for Firefox OS – apps are built using HTML5 (along with CSS3 and JavaScript) instead of native languages. For comparison, Android apps are developed in Java; Windows Phone apps are developed in C++, C#, or HTML5, etc. Mozilla has developed Web APIs so that HTML5 apps can communicate with the device’s hardware, which was only possible for native apps until now, e.g. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Camera, etc.
Every app in Firefox OS including the Camera and the Dialer is a web app
An application programming interface (API) specifies how some software components should interact with each other

Slide3-Firefox OS is inspred by Android, hence it has a lockscreen, a homescreen and a notification bar
However its not entirely similar as u can see, noticeable difference is that there is no dedicated icon to open the app drawer like in other OS
Sliding right on the home screen shows the list of installed apps.
Sliding left on the home screen shows the list of app categories, which when clicked, shows installed and suggested apps in the chosen category.
Long pressing the home key brings the list of opened apps along. Pressing the power button brings the power off menu. Pressing home and power keys together takes a screenshot.

Slide4-In the few months since initial launch, Firefox OS smartphones are now available in 15 markets, with new operators and new markets around the globe .
Mozilla itself will be selling phones, too: a reference design called the for hardware and software partners called the Firefox OS Flame.
Mozilla's main focus is on smartphones, but it's encouraging others to help push Firefox OS into tablets. Via's 7-inch Vixen 7 and Foxconn's 10-inch InFocus are available to developers who are interested in the area.
Sony is also gonna release a firefox phone this year
Panasonic announced they will make SmartTVs powered by Firefox OS, Foxconn and Mozilla is working with suppliers to enable devices for all target user groups. All handsets which will run Firefox OS will sport Qualcomm processors, as Mozilla has done an exclusive deal with the chip maker.
