    Instead, an open-source project called WebKit powers the browser on the higher-end mobile phones du jour--Apple's iPhone, the Palm Pre, and Motorola's Droid and other models running Google's Android operating system, with BlackBerry headed that direction, too.

    In contrast, the first mobile Firefox version will run on Nokia's powerful but relatively obscure new N900, a $569 hybrid computer and mobile phone that uses Nokia's Linux-based Maemo operating system. A Windows Mobile version of Firefox is set to arrive next year, and Mozilla has begun working on an Android version now that Google released a native developer kit.

    I think you may have missed this....

    maybe i missed it, but i didnt see any mention of it coming to WebOS next week. It only mentioned that they plan to have a beta release candidate released next week, not mentioning which OS. Seems they have a deal with Nokia's N900, i expect it to show up there first.

    Hope it does though, firefox is my browser of choice, it will be interesting to see what it can do on WebOS.

    Edit: mrloserpunk beat me to it.

    It won't be available on WebOS next week or next year. I doubt you will ever see it on WebOS unless they radically alter their SDK strategy.

    Uh, You dont think that adding default app options is prepping webos to offer differant browsers, dialers and email clients? Your thinking Palm put that into the pre this early just to give the impression that you could have a differant default browser, but not because they plan on helping those other apps become available?

    That is the worst title for a post ever...

    Mobile Firefox w/ WebGL support would be HUGE.

    Please provide your proof that it's coming to WebOS next week.

    As poster above happy (real happy) then SAD!

    A different dialer or email app would be theoreticly possible with the current SDK, a Firefox port would definitely not be. Not sure I see the point anyway. It's not like there is anything fundamentally wrong with the webkit browser.

    "It's the right model. It's not there yet," Sullivan said of Web-based programs. Today programmers must create separate versions of applications for BlackBerry, Nokia's Symbian, Android, the iPhone, and other mobile phones.

    But that profusion will be replaced by the universality of the Web, he predicted.

    "In three years," Sullivan said, "80 percent of those applications are going to be Web-based."


    Would this favor Palms approach to WebOS?

    Who is Sullivan? Where did he get this 80% number from?
