Mozilla expecting Windows Phone 7 Series to support Firefox

In an open letter to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Mozilla Platform Engineer Luobusaier (Rob Sayre) asked Microsoft to give access and allow Firefox on their new Windows Phone 7 Series platform.

In the letter, Mozilla compares Android with WP7S and asks Microsoft to take a cue from Android’s NDK API. Since Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Series does not offer any native development package scheme yet, Mozilla Foundation is unable to develop Windows Phone 7 Series version of Firefox browser.

With the use of native development kit i.e. a NDK, developers can build applications that are compatible with the WP7 series.
