Mozilla to launch Firefox OS at MWC?

It looks like Mozilla is ready to pull the veil off Firefox OS at Mobile World Congress 2013.

Well, look what just landed in my in-box a few minutes ago: a save-the-date from Mozilla, best known for its Firefox browser, for a press conference at Mobile World Congress later this month.

Mozilla has been hard at work on Firefox OS, an open-source operating system alternative for developers to really sink their teeth into.

We got our latest hands-on with the developing OS last month at CES, but to me, a press conference worthy of a save-the-date means one thing: that Mozilla is ready to show off a major new development.

CNET reached out to Mozilla and will update this post with any comments.

In the meantime, check out the latest on Firefox OS and the budding open-source OS movement for mobile phones.
