Fennec for WM Finally Reaches Alpha

Fennec for WM Finally Reaches Alpha

Fennec, or Firefox Mobile, has finally reached the magic Alpha milestone. Prior to now, it was only available for the Nokia N800 / N810, or you could use a pre-Alpha version on the HTC Touch Pro. It wasn't all that encouraging that the first pre-Alpha release had a showstopper bug.

On Friday, Mozilla announced that the Windows Mobile version of Fennec had finally reached an Alpha version. Here's what Mozilla said:
We are pleased to announce that Fennec Alpha 1 for Windows Mobile 6 is available for download by developers and testers. This is an early developer release intended for testing purposes only. We would like to invite interested Windows Mobile developers and users to join with Mozilla’s developer and user community to help develop, test and refine the product. [...]

This release has been targeted and tested on the HTC Touch Pro. We will be adding support for more devices in future releases. To install on your device, you can either navigate to this cab installer from your phone’s current browser or download it to your desktop and copy it to your device via ActiveSync. Once on your device simply click on the cab and it will install to your device. For more detailed installation instructions, look here and of course, please read the release notes.
