Mozilla & Gecko clones "Still, Firefox OS could have a big impact on the Web even if it never gains significant market share. By pushing the Web forward, Mozilla is helping to ensure that mobile websites will continue to be relevant even as developers create hundreds of thousands of proprietary apps. Firefox could lose the battle for the smartphone OS market but still win the war for open standards."

Why do people keep looking at these things with the US/western hat on.

These phones are meant for other markets, where smartphones have not yet made any big impact.

Usually because they are much to expensive.

The US/Western Hat is the only one I'm really comfortable wearing. The only reason why I'd buy a phone or recommend it to a friend is if it met our needs. So yes, I could preface ever comment I ever make about anything with "From a US/Western perspective", but isn't that obvious? I mean should I expand that to " From the third planet of the known solar system in the milky way galaxy's western/US perspective, " ?
