The first version of the Firefox browser aimed at the cell phone market is "days away" according to the head of the project.

The browser, codenamed Fennac, will initially be aimed at the Nokia N900 handset, but versions compatible with other handsets will follow.

Speaking to BBC News, Mozilla's Jay Sullivan said that barring any "show stoppers", the browser could be made available to download "within the year."

Fennac, which has been over a year and a half in the making, will be the first mobile browser to support add-ons, a feature that could see it being popular with power users. Like its desktop bigger brother, Fennac supports tabs, and will also feature an Awesome bar address/search bar.

Stay tuned Nokia N900 users!
