B2G (Boot to Gecko) Video Demo at MWC 2012

B2G (Boot to Gecko) is an open source HTML5-based operating system targeting mobile devices by the Mozilla Foundation. This OS runs on top of Linux and uses Firefox as the web browser. You can get further details on my previous post “Mozilla Boot to Gecko (B2G) OS Is Coming to Your Smartphone“.

As previously announced, Mozilla showcased B2G on a Samsung Galaxy S2 at Mobile World Congress 2012. Every apps are written in HTML5 including the camera application that uses HTML5 Media Capture and Canvas for real-time effects. Engadget was there and shot the video demo below.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S2, you can build and try it on your device. This is experimental, so there is always the risk of bricking your phone.
