Mozilla is a fair way behind the curve when it comes to launching a mobile browser?it got a pre-alpha version out only a week ago and it didn't work at all. They do have some plans to bring a competitive mobile browser out?which they'll refer to just as "Firefox" to avoid implying that it has been trimmed down ("Fennec" is the code name for the project).
Sullivan said that Mozilla would target Windows Mobile, Maemo, Symbian and LiMo as platforms for its browser. "The iPhone forbids it. The BlackBerry platform is basically a Java environment that they expose to application developers, and we're not written in Java, so that's tricky. The same is true for Android, so you won't see our mobile browser on Android for the moment" ... which is ironic considering how of Mozilla's income came from Google.
