I can't wait to get one of the new FFOS phones and especially trying out the HTML5 development ecosystem.

What is the general opinion? Are you sticking with Android, Apple etc... or will it be on your next phone?

I'll be interested to see how fast it is or isn't. Elsewhere there have been some headline desertions from HTML5 due to performance issues.

I'll also be interested to see how clunky it is or isn't. HTML5 relies a lot on CSS3 (try doing a conventional drop-down menu in CSS2.1), which is still taking shape. [Update. This issue only applies if you disable javascript, which I always do by default).

I am sure that HTML5 is the future but I am not convinced that future is yet on our doorstep.

A friend of mine just got his developer phone. He said the OS was well designed, but reported a few performance issues.
I hope this improves in the future though.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I heard Samsung's Tizen OS uses HTML5 too -- so there's a big company also taking a gamble on it.

HTML5 is indeed the future, hopefully DRM free Evil or Very Mad
