The news comes from ZTE's Executive Vice President, He Shiyou, who told The Wall Street Journal that ZTE will launch new Firefox OS-powered smartphones early next year, he also took the time to confirm that the company are to release Windows Phone 8-based smartphones later this year.

 

Now we should start wondering what Google are going to do with this news, seeing that ZTE are moving into the Firefox OS camp with their new smartphones. Will we see a degradation of the relationship between the Mountain View-based company, and ZTE?
