Creator of new threads from offtopic posts

Today, we announced several significant milestones in the advancement toward these goals. The first, was Telefónica’s support for the creation of open Web devices based on our ”Boot to Gecko” project. Also supporting the project are industry leaders, Adobe and Qualcomm. Together, we are committed to driving forward the adoption of HTML5 as a viable platform option for the mobile industry.

In a joint press conference, Telefónica revealed their intention to work with us to deliver the very first open Web devices in 2012. These devices, architected entirely on the Web and built based on an HTML5 stack with powerful Web APIs, will mean significant advances in speed and cost reduction for mobile devices in the future. Attendees at the press conference were able to see a sneak preview of what is possible with HTML5 open Web technologies powering entire mobile device functions and experiences.

Mozilla is delighted to also announce Deutsche Telekom’s support of an open Web platform. Specifically, Deutsche Telekom’s Innovation Labs will join the “Boot to Gecko” project with dedicated development resources, and is evaluating further steps based on our common experience.
