    With the popularity of Android and now the mention of Android on desktop, do we need another similar app really? Android is now fully mature and yes, its a Google product with all the question mark, point is acceptance is the biggest factor in survival today than ever before.

    Well, Mozilla maybe hoping there's a "market" for those allergic to anything Google. There's a lot of that going around :D though I wonder about the "default" search engine.

    Telefonica building web-centric OS with Mozilla
    "Mozilla has announced that it is partnering with Telefonica to build a web-standards-based mobile operating system. The Open Web Devices (OWD) platform will be based on Mozilla's Boot2Gecko (B2G) project, which the non-profit announced last year.
    ...
    Development of Boot2Gecko is being supported by Adobe and Qualcomm. Earlier reports that Deutsche Telekom is joining the B2G effort were also confirmed, with the German telecommunications provider dedicating development resources to the mobile operating system. "

    Mozilla opens up over Boot 2 Gecko
    The walled-garden deniers can also deny the "getting locked into silos".

    Looks like they released a port to the SGS2. I'm going to give it shot and report back!
