The quick red Mozilla Firefox jumped over the fence to Android's backyard.

In case you’re not fully satisfied with your Android browsers on your mobile devices, well Mozilla Firefox may (or may not) quench your thirst for some web browser goodness, as its final version launches to the Android Market today. Unfortunately, the browser won’t be coming with the Adobe Flash software. Strike one for Mozilla already, but let’s give the browser a chance, eh?

“For us, HTML5 and the open Web video standards are most important right now,” said Thomas Arend, Mozilla’s principal Product Manager. “Flash is a reality, though — I’m aware that it’s there and it’s going to be around for a while — so we’re definitely looking into it and will look into enabling Flash plugins in a future version.”

Bitbop seems dedicated to solely providing mobile TV viewing, and might be tying its hands by not attempting to expand beyond handheld devices. For now, the app could be a solid mobile TV solution for Android users, but a Hulu app for Android is expected by the end of the year.

Earlier this summer, a mobile TV subscription service — Bitbop — was launched exclusively on Blackberry devices. This time, the FOX-owned company has taken a step forward as it makes its service available on Android devices. For $9.99 per month, BlackBerry and Android users can now subscribe to watch full television episodes on their mobile devices.

However, Bitbop faces some serious obstacles from popular competitors. For one; Hulu features dozens of shows from the four big cable networks, while Bitbop just had a few.
