Mozilla's Firefox Mobile OS is set to power a smartphone launched in Europe from Chinese manufacturer ZTE. The software company's open-source platform will enable developers to create HTML-5 or native applications for the operating system and will rival the Ubuntu for Phones platform that Canonical aims to have ready for mobile devices in the coming months.
