Round icons...That's new!

Right between the regular icons of android, rounded-squares of iOS and sharp-edged squares of WP tiles.

Wonder what else visual "innovation" they're gonna come up with - triangles anyone?

One looks like Iphone and the other looks like Xperia tipo. UI looks IOSish and Icons look like Symbianish.

I was really hoping for some thing better... So for now windows8 is the most balanced os right now then . Not too much closed like ios or not so wide open inviting spams like android.. No need to pay for using premium services like bb and well synced with social networks but not too much net dependent like mozilla.. Easy to use and nice for eyes. Best option for commo people who require simple to use smartphones(well some say boring and less apps , but ordinary and real people doesn't need a million apps .just Basic requirements to fullfil daily requirements. )not for boys and kids who does nothing but play games all the time with their phones.
Well lets wait and see what ubuntu and tizen are made of.. May be we may get some thing better than windows 8

Well these mff phones will become the most supported phones by the carriers and not the people.. Just imagine all the money carriers are gonna make from this mobile which requires to connect to the internet just to start up the phone ? Whatever may be the functionalities but still its like raising a white elephant saying heavy phone bills... I think the only offline things possible are call sms and charging ! I thought this was better but no its not what was expected.. Thumbs down

The phone look like IPhone copy but that is not so important, the OS is, let`s see how this os can handle a phonje and what future will bring.

The future of the Firefox OS stays only on how much money they will push in to this and for how long, it will take some time until they will get market with this OS

When Android and IOS started, most of people didn't know what app was. For example they used facebook or twitter via browser without any no app claim. And mobile app world was created on these both ecosystems. That's why nowadays conditions are quite different, thats why Microsoft spends billion $-s for Windows Phone, but no any success. This difficulty is waiting for Ubuntu and Firefox both.
My main thought is this: 4-5 years ago users bought smartphones without app demand, they chosed just OS and device. But nowadays they demand good device, OS and plus good ecosystem.
