Mozilla hopes to eventually bring the smartphone to the US via a major carrier with Sprint tipped to be the carrier partner. No time frame for that to happen has been announced.

Fans of the Firefox OS for smartphone in the UK can also purchase the device via eBay as can shoppers in Germany, Russia, and 20 other countries in Europe. The Open C smartphone has a 4-inch screen and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor.
