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)

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!
