Firefox Mobile for Android could be next big thing

Firefox Mobile for the Android operating system could very well be the next big thing in terms of mobile software, but it might take some time for the final release to roll out considering a very different code base, as Android is built on Java while Firefox Mobile is developed in the C and C++ languages. Since the Open Handset Alliance offers support for native C and C++ code in the NDK, Mozilla is able to take the next step and roll out a dedicated version of Firefox Mobile for Android. When the time comes though, do you think Android-powered phone owners will move on to Firefox Mobile instead of sticking to the default Google-powered browser?
