Mozilla has announced the Firefox OS in the 2nd of July!
Network carriers supporting the first batch of mobile phones in 2013 will include Sprint, Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Smart, Telecom Italia, Telefónica and Telenor.
Firefox OS devices will be ‘built entirely to open web standards’ Mozilla say, ‘where all of the device’s capabilities can be developed as HTML5 applications.’
This means that EVERY HTML5 Developer will be able to create awesome apps for his Firefox Phone!
Here is a Video Preview:
Called ‘Boot to Gecko’, the project tasked itself with ‘allowing HTML5 applications to access the underlying capabilities of a phone, previously only available to native applications.’ in B2G every application on the phone, be it SMS, Camera or dialer, is an HTML5 application.
The fact that the WHOLE OS will be developed in HTML5 is a really great idea!
We hope a project such this goes well and be released to the public for a whole new Experience!
