Mozilla to Compete with Android

Mozilla Foundation isn't happy competing with Google with its vastly popular web browser on desktop. As reports mentioned, the company behind Firefox is now stepping into the world of smartphone operating systems.
Earlier, Mozilla built a mobile version of its web browser codenamed Fennec (Firefox for Mobile).
It is said that Mozilla may take some of the components from Android for its own version of smartphone OS, but majority of the new operating system will be written from scratch, which means consumers can anticipate something different and fresh in the world of smartphones.

As soon as the new operating system from the Firefox family is out, it will undoubtedly compete with its major rival Android as both will run on the same devices.

Mozilla said the new operating system will be designed in a way that will be much more open than the one Google built. Although the company says Android will be their first competitor in the market, there are other obvious rivals including Windows Phone 7 and the upcoming iOS 5. Even if Mozilla makes it to the smartphone operating system market, the competition won't be easy.

Do you feel any interest to try out Mozilla's own operating system for smartphones?
