Mozilla Commits to Firefox for Windows Mobile

Mozilla Mobile“Last month, the Mozilla Corporation promised to devote much more time and resources to a version of its web browser for smartphones. At that time, though, it didn’t specify which mobile operating systems would be getting a version of Firefox. This has now changed.Christian Sejersen, who is heading up this project, has added a post to his blog that lists the OSs that are being targeted. There is already a version of Mobile Firefox for Maemo, the version of Linux being run by the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet. Mozilla is also considering updating this for the Nokia N810.But it isn’t going to stop there. Sejersen also says a version for Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6 is in development that will be available soon. Goals for Mobile FirefoxIn his blog post, Sejersen lays out the current goals for Firefox mobile: provide Mozilla’s standards-based open-source browser engine, optimized for mobile, that can be embedded by device manufacturers and others; produce a full-featured mobile browser including support for XUL-based add-ons, delivering on Firefox’s key principles of ease-of-use, security and accessibility; grow the Mozilla community in the mobile space; provide tools and documentation to help developers develop, debug and deploy web applications; do all of this work in the shared Mozilla source repositories so all platforms, desktop and mobile benefit each other ” via

This includes demand paging (!), so 30MB plus free RAM after booting, faster operation, N-Gage game store previews and portal stub, new camera software, integrated Search, new Welcome apps and more.Changes in the new firmware New Welcome application New camera software and tweaks from the 8GB model – FAR faster shot to shot time, with ‘Processing image message’ during any delays Long press on camera button launches camera if shutter is open New My Nokia SMS tips and mobile web portal system Demand paging (for ROM applications) with 30 plus MB free RAM after booting. Search 4.0 integration on standby screen. Old multimedia menu still there, i.e. it’s not the new style N-Gage game previews (FIFA, Asphalt) and portal/shortcut to upcoming N-Gage client, as in N81 and N95 8GB Nokia Music Store client, although the store server hasn’t been updated to handle the N95 yet – maybe this’ll happen later today Keypress bug gone(!), I think No auto-screen rotation, looks like I was wrong predicting this, so we need Samir’s RotateMe after all – someone please help him get this signed ASAP!” More photos of the new firmware here:

Treo 500v Review at palminfocenter!

Windows Mobile 6 Smartphone “As mentioned in the introduction, the Treo 500 is Palm’s thinnest, most lightweight Treo to date. (Not including the Centro, which is 1 gram lighter.) We’re talking exact dimensions of 110 x 62 x 17mm (.65″ x 2.4″ x 4.3” inches) and tipping the scales at 120 grams (4.23 ounces), putting it in the same territory as devices like the Blackberry Curve and the Motorola Q (which measure up at 107 x 60 x 16mm / 111g and 118 x 67 x 12mm / 125g, respectively) It’s marginally wider than the Treo 680/750/755 chassis (by 4mm) and microscopically shorter (by 1mm). As has been the case with their last few smartphones, Palm is offering the 500v with a choice of colours: either “Charcoal Grey” or “Glacier White”. My review unit was the former, and it looks quite nice indeed.” Read more here:
