A number of smartphone manufacturers Sony as well as ZTE have proclaimed intends to launch phones running Firefox OS in 2013. Currently Taiwanese equipment maker Foxconn is likewise displaying the very first running the Mozilla’s OS by having an emphasis on web apps.
A joint group discussion in Taiwan was held by Foxconn and Mozilla in which the companies chatted about in what way they can perform to optimize Mozilla’s software in order to operate on Foxconn-built devices.
While Foxconn isn’t precisely a household name, the corporate manufactures merchandise for quite a number of known corporations such as Apple, Acer, Dell plus others.
Even though Foxconn and Mozilla say they’re operating along on a minimum of five devices right this moment (that includes the tablet), it’s not clear what name brand those devices can truly be sold-out.
As a result of its part, Mozilla says that whereas Firefox OS is initially intended for mobile devices preferably phones and tablets, it’s an open platform that might power a large variety of devices, such as digital signage as well as smart TVs.
Unfortunately we still don’t know who is able to actually sell the very first Foxconn/Firefox tablet, what is the amount of it may cost, where it will probably be available or perhaps even what type of processor the tablet uses. However the essential key features of Firefox OS is the idea that it’s invented to run well even on devices with comparatively slow processors and restricted level of memory.
