#Mozilla unveils #Firefox OS for mobile phones – an annotated graphic

As web 2.0 enthusiasts the world over doubtless already know, earlier this week the not-for-profit Mozilla organisation unveiled a new OS for  mobile phones based on HTML 5 technology.

The Firefox OS is designed to work on cheaper, more basic handsets – such as those unveiled by Nokia at MWC this week – in order to reach a wider community of users, particularly in emerging markets.

Going up against Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android OS would be a tough gig for anyone, so all we can say at this stage is: good luck, guys!
