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.

The apps have to get from the Internet to the phone, so until 4G connections become widespread, there are constraints on what is a reasonable size for HTML5 apps to be.

I don't see why HTML5 apps are different from other apps in that regard.

It's the same for non-HTML5 apps.
