Mozilla releases video showing off the new Firefox OS
The Firefox OS, which is open source like Android, will try to take root at first in areas where the iOS-Android duopoly isn't as prevalent. So far, 17 carriers have agreed to carry Fireox OS flavored handsets including Sprint in the U.S. The list includes America Movil, China Unicom, Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Hutchison Three Group, KDDI, KT, MegaFon, Qtel, SingTel, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia Group, Telefonica, Telenor, TMN and VimpelCom.

only the looks but this one concentrates on HTML5... all apps and software build is HTML5

Not really. I'm sure humans can come up with something creative that doesn't have to resemble Android or Apple but it will take time. I am hoping firefox OS to improve and differentiate....to be even better than what's out there (Android)

Well of course they can. Look at windows phone. The most original mobile os ever really.

Very interesting. I'm excited to see what this might grow into eventually.

its nice to see that firefox keeps it simple... but widgets are really useful!
the very reason why nokia shouldn't let got of symbian coz only android and symbian has this widgets customization that i know..
and also they should let it run on any other SoC out there! it seem like qualcomm chips will be a bit pricey and fancy....there's a ton of SoC out there!! action semiconductors mediatek, rocketchip and other to keep it low-end friendly!
