May be Firefox should have just stuck to making the best browsers for any platform instead of jumping into the game over arena for OSes. As far as WebOs goes I think LG could turn it into something useful for non-handset devices where the space is still open.

It seems it was a wise choice for Mozilla to aim Firefox OS first at feature phones in developing markets. They have a good chance against Symbian, but maybe not so much against Android and iOS.

Yeah, I guess this is a backhand comment on Android for smart TVs

exactly.. I feel Android would have been a better choice for LG because of the app eco system

"Hewlett-Packard sold WebOS to LG Electronics, which will re-purpose it for its smart TVs." It is very interesting. What's so good in WebOS for Smart TV application that Android is unable to offer? Firefox goes mobile is interesting. There might be a lot of attention and developers would like it. Ubuntu tablet will draw a lot of attention too. I wonder when I can download and build my own Ubuntu mobile or Firefox mobile.

The story of the collapse of PalmOS will make a cautionary business case lesson for anyone in the world of Internet innovation. How did the leading PDA interface manage to decline into a "hot potato" for HP to hand off?

I was referring to LG and WebOS. The Firefox announcement seems like another me too, too late.

I think this is good news. They can leverage the front end of their set technology (and perhaps even some tv specialized tablets) to fund development.
