Responding to the call for participation, Billy May has been taking a look at what a phone might look like in this context. What would the ultimate web phone look like? What would give it Mozilla DNA? He’s put up an interesting throw-away “Open Web Concept Phone” as a Blackberry meets interactive OLED keyboard.
In a similar vein, Adaptive Path’s contribution to the Concept Series, Aurora, explores what a Mozilla phone and OS might look like; taking the concept of Mozilla Lab’s Weave to the extreme, letting the Web be the unifying agent between computer, mobile, and wall-sized interactions.
While Mozilla doesn’t have plans to produce an OS or phone hardware at the moment — this doesn’t mean that either are out of scope for Mozilla Labs and that’s the point of the Concept Series. Everything is on the table.
This is just the start and we’re excited to be working with people from around the world in a shared exploration of new ideas.
