firefox phone OS debut shipping launch

Not sure if we need another mobile phone OS or perhaps something new would be fun to shake things up, but Firefox, yes the Mozilla web peeps, have announced a new Firefox OS that is based on HTML 5. Apps would actually be based on HTML5, the current standard for web pages.

We shall see…
