Mozilla & Gecko clones "The notion of a Firefox smartphone browser seemed implausible only a few short years ago, but today it's very much a reality. Firefox Mobile for Maemo demonstrates the flexibility of the Firefox Web browser and its potential to bring a desktop-like browsing experience to constrained computing environments. It is truly an impressive achievement, but it's only the beginning of what Mozilla hopes to accomplish on handheld devices. Stay tuned for our follow-up about Weave, in which we will examine some of the opportunities for innovation created by Firefox Mobile."

Symbian did this too - all apps were incompatible between major versions. So in mobile world this often happens. Anyway, in mobile world you don't have so much resources, to bloat with "legacy" support, like Windows for example. You must cut what is old or not used.
