Screenshots have leaked of Mozilla's new mobile operating system, which is set for release next year.

Now what would be cool is if carriers let you choose an OS, and maybe even go back and forth between FF OS and Android.

So what to expect from news involving "Firefox OS" over the next year or so then? Apple sue Mozilla for some ridiculous infringement claim?

Unfortunately for Firefox, I see this going down in a fiery ball of foxy flames. It should at least be interesting to see how they market this... lol I'm surprised no one else has noticed (or at least commented) that the Evernote and Angry Birds icons are reversed. Or rather, that the notification titles are.
