Re: I love the idea, but..

This could work as a replacement for featurephones. It only needs a 300-500Mhz processor. Will cost much less for carriers to subsidize so they may push this on the low end.

I like the concept. Many apps on smartphones don't need to be a separate app, like a CNN app. Just do it all in HTML5 but bundle it so that it is downloaded. HTML5 could be bundled and run as a local 'app' offline too. Could be done in a much smaller footprint than a full blown app. To see how powerful HTML5 is, check out web based version of Command and Conquer.

They'll need a strong app market and some decent marketing.

This is exactly why I wouldn't even bother buying one of those phones personally. Android has such a wide market of apps now, why would I ever want to switch to a phone that has no apps?

This is a manufacter/carrier play to differentiate themselves in the marketplace, and it's sweeping the mobile industry worldwide. Samsung's Tizen OS and the upcoming Ubuntu mobile OS are two other examples of this.

I believe Mozilla is a little late to the party. I just don't see this grabbing hold long enough for them to get help with funding the marketing of it. iOS and Android have such a firm hold on this area that it's going to be tough to draw anyone away. They'll need a strong app market and some decent marketing. I hope it works out well for them.
