Firefox OS 2.0 Is Taking Shape


Quote:
Firefox OS, the mobile operating system that Mozilla is aligning its whole company around, continues to evolve. There are now many screenshots online of version 2.0 of the mobile platform, with lots of them seen in these galleries. The OS has a fresher look in the shots, and there are also a lot of new features. Here are more details.

Sören Hentzschel, a Mozilla representative in Germany, published a gallery of images showing the new version of Firefox OS, seen below. According to CNet:
"Firefox OS 2.0 plans include copy and paste support, a new mechanism for launching apps and switching among them, a more useful lock screen, a find-my phone system, and more. Those features will be crucial to the success of the nascent OS, which lags Android and iOS by years but which is critical to Mozilla's continued relevance."

The Revolution has a 1.6-GHz Intel Z2560 Atom dual-core processor, and a 4.7-inch, 960-by-540 pixel screen. There is 1GB of RAM and 4GB of integrated storage, expandable via a microSD card. The phone also has an 8-megapixel camera.

Version 2.0 of Firefox OS looks a lot slicker than the first version, and we're likely to see much more of it in coming days. Mozilla seems to moving quickly to evolve its young mobile platform.
