Firefox Mobile Browser for Windows Smartphone Due Next Week

TouchPro_Fennec.pngAccording to the Mozilla Wiki there may be a Windows mobile version of the Firefox browser for the HTC Touch Pro, next year.

"We are targeting a Milestone release for the first week of February, targeting the HTC Touch Pro," notes the Wiki post.

The browser is code named Fennec.  The open development Mozilla team is also working on a Symian version of the mobile browser, expect to fully launch in June.
Mozilla's Firefox has been able to cut into Internet Explorer's dominance in the computer browser market.

They released an alpha version of their Mobile Browser in December for the Nokia 810 Internet Tablet.  The January issue of the Mozilla Mobile Developer News reported:

The mobile team is getting ready to deliver its first beta of Fennec
(aka "Firefox Mobile") next month, [February} and the Mozilla Quality Assurance
community is looking for help with testing this release.

 "This is
exciting news as everybody who has seen Fennec has great things to say
about it. If you haven't had a chance to see Fennec first hand, I
encourage you to download it and give it a try
(it also works on your desktop).

With mobile internet becoming a
cornerstone for many of the new devices, there is a much greater need
for Fennec. We just recently added Symbian as a supported OS which
makes 3 following Maemo and Windows Mobile.

The beta we will be
delivering next month will be for Maemo only as that is the most stable
platform." There are lots of opportunities if you want to get involved
with the Fennec testing project, and more information is available on the QMO weblog.
