Madrid, Spain, the first Firefox OS smartphones, available now for about $90 bucks. Here's an article at The Washington Post.

This is great. Totally open source. Should drop in nicely as an option to what's out there now. While not competing directly with the iPhone or the Android smartphones, it does compete directly for "third place" among mobile operating systems -- against Blackberry and the Windows Phone, for example. 

Can't wait for this to hit the United States. Choice is good. But I know there are gonna be lots of people out there who are gonna want this to fail. I'll try to jump on it just like I jumped on the Firefox web browser several years back, and hopefully Firefox OS smartphones take off just like the web browser did.

Here's some info about it at The Mozilla Blog.
