I think we should appreciate something like this, more choice more fun. stop those fanboism, W all have different taste. I cant imaging if there is only one OS out there at the market . its so boring.,its up to us on what to choose.

Just because it isn't already slamming the iphone and s3s, doesn't mean it doesn't have a market. And with a 3.5 inch screen and 3 meg camera I think budget smartphones and developing markets could be a target. Networks will want to sell a cloud phone, think of all the high end data packages they get to sell ;)

I've got no complaint, but at the same time I just gave up on firefox. To many compatibility issues, adobe flash player seems to stop working at every update, the annoying updates messages...seems like there is an update every week, the devs have no interest in people reporting problems...so i have no interest in this phone.

I really don't understand the users who always posting copy of this, copy of that are u kidding me ? What u going to see different in mobile os ? Its a menu screen & its going to look like the same as others. well placed menu items in horizontal & vertically. Window is having ctrl button where Apple pc os having command button so are you going to say Apple copy Microsoft ?? there are many things which we have to put or use in same way that not means we are copying them.

When u r shouting about copy copy post ur ideas too & if u r not a genius to post any single idea then shut the f**k up coz creating os is not a joke.

B4 saying any shit about anything thing about yourself & where u r standing. I am not a Firefox or any os mad fan coz i am using what i want to use without abusing others hard work.

Its my kind request to every one that post ur comment on anything after using that thing. Stop posting comments only by assuming & respect ever ones hard work.

Hey Mozilla, your android browser sucks. Fix that first before releasing these phones.

Just need the following for successful mobile OS
1. Smooth / fast with minimum specs
2. bug free
3. ease of use
4. good usage of resources (mem/batt)
5. ease of developing applications

No need flashy UI looks .. or eye candy animation .. those for geeks and kids.

Apple started making phones a couple years ago,2007 to be exact.You talk like apple started de mobile business.Every smartphone now a days is a iphone copy right? Apple marketing is like they invented everything for example: sind there was 3G network you could make a videocall. In 2011 the iphone 4 was there first phone with front camera(wifi only to be exactly)What does apple marketing say? "we invented something new!! it's called FACE TIME WHOOOOW" thats something new right.
