Mozilla's Mike Schroepfer recently stated that Mozilla plans to enter the mobile space with a mobile version of its Firefox browser. He noted that Mozilla had delayed its decision to enter the mobile market until handset specs included more than 64 MB of RAM and faster processors.

Mozilla has brought on new developers to head its mobile efforts and plans to ship mobile Firefox some time in 2008.
