Mozilla & Gecko clones And even more news from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Mozilla has announced a partnership with Telefonica and Qualcomm, which will bring Mozilla's Boot to Gecko HTML5-based mobile interface to devices later his year. This is a huge boon for the fully open source environment.

(Another Spaniard here.)

Not just that, but I haven't seen Telefónica ever creating a good software project or even a working website (their customers area is a nightmare). It's like all they touch becomes shitware. Hopefully, they're only pouring money into the Mozilla Foundation and not "helping" with their own engineers.

I do believe the web will be THE platform for mobile. It will probably be also the platform for consumer laptops and tablets. The desktop will be "relegated" to professional use.
