Just days after announcing its plans to utilize Mozilla‘s Firefox OS for future devices, Sony Mobile has just releases an experimental version of the OS for developers to explore around. However, one requires an unlocked Xperia E in order to use it.
This is how the OS looks like on a Sony Xperia E:

Due to its experimental nature and the fact that Sony’s Firefox OS device will only be out sometime to 2014, it is natural that the ROM has a number of limitations. It is missing radio connectivity (which means no phone calls, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth), unstable SD card functionality and non-optimized touch sensitivity.
Nevertheless, if you own a Sony Xperia E and feels adventurous enough to try out the ROM, you can check out the step-by-step instructions on how to load it up into the device at Sony Mobile’s developer site.
