Hi Matthias,
it's just marketing video - doesn't mean it will respond on every HW so quickly. ;-) But it's great to see they will come with 'revolution' gesture control on the screen. In opposite Firefox OS will be just another 'standard' mobile OS. Hope at least one (I bet for Firefox OS) of them will be completely open source and will not require any account to be registered somewhere.
Anybody already tried Firefox OS on GTA02/04?
Just to let you know - Android could be used w/o any registration and without any vendor-locked components. Unfortunately it is more exception, then case - many chipset vendors are not opening driver sources, especially for modem and OpenGL hw. I am not expecting anything very different with Ubuntu OS - it is hardware vendor policy and there is no way to prevent this from from OS vendor. And yes, i didnt mention fact that every device do have closed source GSM stack, what making much more problems for privacy then, for example, closed source video driver. And again, Firefox OS, Android or QTMoko will not solve this issue (
