Mozilla & Gecko clones

Whether or not the Open fits your needs, one thing is clear: Mozilla needs more capable hardware to demonstrate Firefox OS' potential. The Open is good for someone whose alternative would be a basic flip phone, but the camera quality, connectivity, display and performance don't do full justice to the software.

A promising start, but clearly better hardware is needed. I'm really hoping Firefox OS gets a fair shot.

Perhaps HP could purchase Mozilla and give them the hardware leverage they need?

The nice thing about FirefoxOS is that it is open-source. And real open-source at that so no waiting months for the source to be released.

That is why I think FirefoxOS has a good chance to succeed.

It'll probably be embarrassing for Microsoft if even FirefoxOS manages to gain more market share than Windows Phone

That was too painful to be funny.
