An early, pre-alpha version of Mozilla’s Fennec mobile browser has been around for months, but the Firefox developer has today released an official full alpha for download. And it’s not just Android that’s benefiting – the mobile browser has also been released for Nokia’s N900 smartphone.

Nokia and Intel have joined up to marry their Moblin and Maemo platforms, creating the MeeGo spawn which will be seen on devices by the ends of the year. Another operating system?
