The UI looks markedly different from some of the previous screenshots we have seen and draws heavy inspiration from...

Its whateva. IOS and Adroid made signicant strides in how a successful OS should look, so, yes, this is going to have design cues from them. But, as long a Mozilla puts its own flavor in the deal, it shouldn't be so much a clone as a it should be a delicately different mobile OS. My hopes. More OS choices means e'rybody steps up game, meaning better choices for end users.

It's terribly unauthentic. It's impossible to stand out of the crowd of smartphone OSes without going for a fresh new design.
