Mozilla Reveals Firefox OS 1.1 Update, New Features and Performance Improvements for Firefox Phones
The feature list is relatively long for a 1.1 update (meaning more than just one or two tweaks). Some of the things it includes are MMS support (you can now send and receive pictures, audio, and video files via MMS), a Push Notification API for developers, Adaptive app search now being placed front and center on the home screen, and a new Music search feature.
Mozilla also enhanced several existing features. As far as Contact Management goes, Firefox OS 1.1 users now have the ability import existing contacts from Gmail or Hotmail, in addition to the existing Facebook and SIM card import options. Users can also add any phone number or email address to their contacts listed in their call log, SMS messages, or email. Dialer suggestions have been added, too.
In terms of performance improvements, Firefox promises you'll see faster application load times and smoother scrolling with the 1.1 update.
Firefox 1.1 will be available for current users and on developer phones soon, Mozilla said in a blog post.
