Mozilla changes name of mobile browser from "Fennec" to "Firefox 4 for Android and Nokia N900"
The idea is to align the version numbers of both browsers so that no one is confused that the desktop version of Firefox is at 4.x and the mobile version is at 2.x. As Mark Finkle, a member of the Mozilla team working on Firefox simply puts it on his blog, "Treating them as the same version seemed like the right thing to do."

FireFox used to be my baby. Now its Google Chrome.

Agreed, though I'm interested to see a browser war on a mobile platform... I doubt Apple will play (or maybe even allow others to play on their platform), but between Dolphin, Google, Firefox, Opera, Skyfire and XScope, I definitely gonna shop around

N900 was the worst purchase I ever made. Next to zero support from Nokia and it had an awful battery life. Great phone, but it was missing so many fixes that could have made it great.

I also had the N900. Loved it but the lack of updates and support switched me back to Android.

What are you two talking about? I have a Nokia N900 and it's an awesome handset! There is also loads of support for it. Have you tried maemo.org? There was just an update for it to pr 1.2 and the apps for it are updated constantly. Just as good as any Android handset out there, and capable of doing just as much, if not more. And there will be an update to pr 1.3 from Nokia.
