Eventhough Leaked images of Firefox OS have released earlier,Now we have official Images from Mozilla.Our First Impression of Firefox OS is that its a mix of both Android and iOS.
It is still a work in progress but the OS looks visually attractive.The rounded icons seemed to be inspired from Nokia Belle while the Home Screen is clearly inspired from iOS.It has a drop-down notification bar as well, just like Android, along with system shortcut buttons we find in Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on its Android smartphones. Even the settings menu is similar to Android.
But the differentation will be in hardware as we expect Firefox OS to be less processor intensive than Android.
