Mozilla has announced that it is entering into the mobile OS market with Firefox OS, formerly code named Boot to Gecko. The OS is HTML5 based and the planned phones will use an unannounced version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The OS will be based on the Linux kernel and apps will run on the Gecko web browser. The Gaia UI component will be used to provide users with an interface to interact with the phone. Several carriers have signed on to carry the phones including Sprint, Deutsche Telekom, and Telecom Italia. Brazilian carrier Telefonica will be the first to get the phone next year.
