New images have hit the Internet and purport to show what could be the design for Mozilla's upcoming Firefox OS Marketplace.

Engadget published photos yesterday of what it claims is the app store for Firefox's mobile operating system. The images show a small listing of apps, including Solitaire and Word Wars. Several app categories are listed, including business, games, and books and reference.

According to Engadget, once users click on an application to get details, they'll find a rating and the option to submit a review to the community.

Mozilla gave Firefox OS its name back in July . In addition, the company announced that it had signed a few new partners for its initiative, including Sprint and ZTE. When the operating system, which sits on top of a version of Linux but runs applications in a version of Firefox, was first announced in February, Mozilla had said that phones would launch at the end of this year.

Now, the first Firefox OS devices are expected to launch next year. Brazil will be first to get them.
