Firefox Mobile could run on eBook readers, other devices

Mozilla's upcoming mobile web browser (codenamed Fennec) may be designed for cellphones and portable devices running Windows Mobile, Linux, and Symbian. But the neat thing about open source software is that you can port it to run on pretty much anything if you know what you're doing. Case in point? This video of Fennec running on an e-ink device.

At this point, this is pretty much a proof of concept. The machine is some sort of a prototype and there's no hardware or on-screen keyboard, or much of anything else. But it is interesting to see how smoothly Fennec runs on a device with an e-ink screen. You know what else has an e-ink screen? The Amazon Kindle.
