Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A very well organised and clearly written overview of the rise of the smartphone, and the value of open source software (and hardware) on such devices. As the title suggests, the book focuses on Firefox OS, but the authors also explore a number of open source alternatives. Although aimed at trade union organisers and social activists, this book will be of value to anyone who is interested in the future of the smartphone.

An interesting technical debate perhaps if you're a system designer(Sadly I'm not & I gave up before the end). It didn't tell me, in simple terms, what I wanted to know about what Firefox can do for me......

This is an excellent and informative read regarding the rise of smartphones, what the risks are of existing systems, and an exploration of the possible alternatives. There are some excellent ideas for follow-up by individuals and organisations. A definite read!

Excellent readable book. Very useful for activists and others who dislike the near monopoly of the other operating systems. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Great short book for anyone interested in privacy or using technology for campaign groups without getting exploited by Apple or Android.
