Last month I wrote about Mozilla Foundation's plans to officially port Firefox to mobile devices too and Christian Sejersen, the former head of browsers at Openwave who is now heading the platform engineering effort, confirmed in his blog now that Windows Mobile is one of the target platforms which gets Firefox Mobile first.
According to his posting, the overall goals for Mozilla Mobile are providing Mozilla's standards-based open-source browser engine, optimized for mobile, that can be embedded by device manufacturers and others; a full-featured mobile browser including support for XUL-based add-ons, delivering on Firefox's key principles of ease-of-use, security and accessibility.

The first target platforms the Mozilla Mobile team will first focus are devices running on ARM11 processors (ARM v6), namely Linux with the first device working already and Windows Mobile 6.

These platforms are either already up and running or will be soon and will allow the community to start testing UX with different hardware characteristics e.g. screen size (N800/N810: 800×480 vs. HTC S730 320×240) and touch-screen vs. non-touch-screen.

As you might have noticed, there is no Symbian version mentioned above but the Mozilla Mobile team will focus for the start on Linus and Windows Mobile 6.

Cheers ~ Arne

Sounds good! I'm sick and tired of Pocket Internet Explorer. It's the worst browser for Windows Mobiles and the only benefit, sync with IE7, don't work.
