Summary below, full update here

  • Symbian is moving away from open source to a more restrictive license. Will this impact Firefox Home's development on the platform?
  • OEMs and other are creating their own sections in the Android Market. Is this an opportunity Mozilla might want to pursue for add-ons or widgets?
  • MeeGo appears as a more attractive OS in emerging markets and benefits from stronger support in China. Depending on uptake, this might be an opportunity in these markets, but will Firefox run well on x86 architecture and the lower-end devices?
  • Microsoft gave more details on the next version of WP7, called "Mango", which includes IE9, improved OS and device integration capabilities, Marketplace updates and an improved SDK
