Spiria (formerly Innobec) at the MWC - Firefox OS, a promising OS

We have noticed at the MWC that a new operating system is making news: Firefox OS. It is similar in many ways to Android.

The OS already integrates with platforms such as Cordova (PhoneGap) and could eventually be integrated with our own porting platform, Lithium.
