    @spivonious:I wouldn't bet on their instant death either: if the phones aren't complete junk they'll find their own supporters. Firefox is a recognizable brand, so it might be tempting for some OEM to try and differentiate. It remains to be seen if and how this can affect Google.

    More specifically, I always thought about Google as the sugar daddy of OSS: creepy beyond belief, but too rich to send packing. This might indicate that something is changing, or at least that Mozilla wants that to change. I have a hunch the IP battlefield is going to become weird...

    Interesting times ahead.
