Firefox OS
CyanogenMod 9

All round cool guy and  DEV, Dazzozo, has been putting out weekly CM9 builds and is in the process of working out the bugs in cm10 and eventually cm 10.1 (android 4.2). Apparently 10.1 boots, but not a whole lot works.

Just for fun, in the last week, he pulled together a working firefox OS build for this phone too. So that makes this phone one of 6? phones that run the OS. Pretty cool.

Any other development going on outside of modaco for this phone?

Good for the price, pretty average otherwise. IPS Screen is its best feature, but I found it a bit slow on stock ICS firmware and the screen was quite unresponsive. My kernel helped, but I am on CM9 now and finding the Phone pretty good. Just a couple of small bugs left to get everything perfect.
