I just heard the news, and it’s a big one, less then a week ago, Mozilla announced that Firefox 4 for desktop’s was available, and if you were wondering, what this means for mobile, well just a few hours ago they also announced it for Mobile too!



Nokia N900

Download: On your mobile, go to: Firefox.com/M

Note: I’m not sure if the N900 one has been properly released, as 1.1 is still the latest one I get on my device, will update once I know more.

Update: version 1.1 is the latest one for Maemo, so same as has been out for a while, hopefully more updates soon as personally I don’t like the browsing experience.


Any Android device with version 2.0 or above, at least 17MB of internal / SD card storage, and 512MB of RAM

Download: Download from the Android Marketplace or on your mobile, go to: Firefox.com/M

Some of the key features include sync tabs which you have open on your PC, Themes to make it your own, add-on’s (more extensive then was available on the N900), and in 10 languages.

Some more features are below, but you can see a full list over at: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/mobile/features/
