Firefox Mobile to be tested first on Nokia N810


Next week should mark the alpha release of Mozilla’s Firefox Mobile web browser. Interestingly, it’ll first be available on the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet, according to PC Advisor. The alpha will be available for Windows Mobile devices over the next few months, as well. Mozilla’s interested in testing out the touchscreen interface and the plugin development, so it’s a good move to release it for the N810 first as the Nokia Internet Tablet series has a pretty active developer community.

The beta version of Firefox Mobile will likely not be released until 2009. The browser is built on the same engine (Gecko) as the full-fledged Firefox and will be able to handle JavaScript and AJAX. Might not be a bad idea to work support for Flash Video, too.
