Like we said before, it's going to take some time before Fennec aka Firefox Mobile actually gets on Android. But at least it looks like porting Fennec over to Android is progressing rather nicely--they actually got their first page load. According to the developer:
Mouse events sort of work, toplevel windows sort of work, keyboard doesn't work yet but shouldn't be hard to hook up.
They're actually testing the full Firefox interface on Android right now, as it's much more complex than Fennec/Firefox Mobile. The understanding is if full Firefox works, Firefox Mobile would work too. And plus, if Android hits netbooks or tablet devices, full Firefox may be better suited for use on those devices. They're still not even ready to deliver an alpha release but they're certainly a little closer than they were yesterday.
