Mozilla & Gecko clones "It's no secret that Mozilla has been working on a mobile OS. Previously codenamed Boot2Gecko, the project focused on a purely HTML5 based system that worked in many ways like current mobile devices. As the project grew into Mozilla OS, the company has laid out a partnership with ZTE that will have real world devices in certain markets early next year. Testing for this OS had previously consisted of a compiled ROM that would be flashed over a handful of Android devices. Now, Mozilla has moved into full fledged product evaluation mode with their own custom developer phone." Looks decent - and a better solution for testers and developers than custom ROMs.

As soon as they're for sale I'm buying one. I'll keep my galaxy nexus but Mozilla has really hit the nail on the head with Firefox os and i can't wait to use a phone developed specifically for the os.


Just curious... what does this OS do that Android currently doesn't? Will they have maps/gps apps built-in?
