Why Firefox OS will be a Big Win for Apple

The first Firefox OS powered phones are set to debut – soon – Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica will release the first Firefox OS devices.

This is a big win for the open mobile web – unless of course the carriers lock down their Firefox OS devices. Since Firefox OS is essentially – the web – locking down a Firefox OS device won’t be an easy thing to do. Users via their browser, do what browsers are supposed to do, they browse the web.
