    A New OS would be really cool! Too bad about the probable Europe only aim 🙁

      meh,interesting but pass

    Chrome killed firefox. RIP FireFox. This OS is dead on arrival.

    • Hub

      Chrome didn’t kill Firefox. You have been misinformed, Mr Troll.

    Oh look, it is the Lumia iPhone 4s and 5.

    I get this feeling a company who shall not be named is going to sue them for that home button…

    Mozilla and Canonical need to team up and combine this Firefox OS with Ubuntu Phone. They’re both slogging the same “HTML5 Apps” schtick. Which, I’m sure, will be just fine for a lot of things. But native code will generally always be faster.

    • Hub

      Canonical teaming up? Mwaaaahhh !!!! Just the idea is funny. The reality is the twilight zone.

    • schultzter

      The points is that HTML5 is native on this phone.

    Remind me of the INQ cloud touch phones…YUK!

    last thing the mobile market needs is more fragmentation:
    Dumb phones
    iOS x various versions
    Android x various versions
    Windows x various versions
    Blackberry x various versions

    • Hub

      How many of these platforms are really open?

  • IOS

    All we need is an iOS

    I suppose competition is nice, but I don’t really see the need for this.

  • Miknitro

    I agree, I doubt there’s enough interest to keep it afloat long. Seems like a waste of resources.

    After their done paying all related patent fees to the big boys, will there be any money left over?

    The joy of a real HTML5 app is that it is really write once, run anywhere there’s a web browser. Apple makes HTML5 fast but only in safari. There’s some great demos that show it off. Check it out.

    it’s good that there will be multiple implementations. Keeps everyone coding to the standard rather than the mess we had with IE6.

    FirefoxOS might not be the best for higher end phones but these will show if putting the browser closer to the hardware will mean that HTML5 apps can run well on low end phones.
