Re: Firefox Mobile Operating System

The point in the Firefox OS is that it's got low system requirements, is totally open, where Android is Linux based and has open elements but also has closed components and is HTML based, so if you can wrote a web page you can write an app.

That means cheaper phones can be made that do all the smartphone type things but at lower spec and price points so users in developing countries and poorer people in developed nations can afford one.

Granted Android has some pretty cheap handsets out there but to be honest I'd quite like a system not tied in to Google.
