Find out more about this collaborative project between Telefónica and Mozilla.
Francisco Jordano will give an intro to the Telefónica Open Web Device, what it means the collaboration between TEF and MOZ, and will do a bit of technical intro about the device and its capabilities.
There is a lot of work in the making about keeping the mobile web open and luring users away from the siren song of closed environments. A lot of the problems the web has on mobile devices is that the hardware is not available to us using web technologies. This is changing. Google, Microsoft and Mozilla are all working on making it possible to write apps and web sites in the same open technologies and with the web APIs and boot to gecko we have access to the things that make phones fun without having to resort to writing native code. In this talk Chris Heilmann will show what is already possible and where you can help to keep the mobile web open and allow for innovation.
