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.

I find the low cost of the phones appealing. Currently I have a Nokia 1616, and I am happy with it provided what I paid: ~35 EUR.

I would like to have a smartphone, but I am not willing to pay 200 EUR (or more) for one of them. The iPhones are discarded, not only for its price but also because it is very closed nature.

Thus, I found this offering potentially interesting despite I dislike Gecko (months ago I left Firefox for Google Chrome). I wish that these phones are sold in Europe.
