The biggest criticism I have of Android and iOS challenger UbuntuOS is that they made an announcement with no hardware that was even close to shipping. Well, the Mozilla project has gone a step further and announced that they will have not one, but two developer phones to ship next month with the new FirefoxOS.
The Mozilla Project announced the Keon and the Peak, both to ship next month, and they will be made by an up and coming company called. Both phones are very similar in design with the Keon being the lower end of the two phones with a 3.5 inch screen. The Peak ships with a 4.3 inch screen. All other hardware seems very similar.
The Mozilla project has been working on this for quite a while. I am glad to see that they are beating Ubuntu to market with what looks like a very nice OS. You can get more of an idea of what it looks like by installing a browser extension in Firefox.
ExtremeTech reports that the phones will ship on Telefonica, a mobile carrier in Spain. No word on pricing, but it looks like 2013 will be a busy one for Android and iOS competitors with FirefoxOS, Windows Phone, UbuntuOS and Blackberry 10.
