Mozilla’s Goal: Firefox for Android in 2010

Jay Sullivan, vice president of mobile at Mozilla, told CNET today that his goal is to deliver a beta of Firefox for Android in late 2010.

Sullivan confirmed that, as we recently heard, development is underway, and while he stressed he could not make promises, he did state his goal of having the project in beta later this year. The main hurdle is getting the Gecko platform running well in Android, and they plan to support HTML5’s video tag for in-browser video playback.

Of course, aiming at a beta late this year makes us wonder whether an alpha might be available to play with sooner than that.

Firefox Mobile is currently available for the Nokia N900 and N810. Development on a version for Windows Mobile has stopped.
