Foxconn, Mozilla to reveal possible Firefox OS tablet on June 3rd
Foxconn is going to reveal a new mobile device alongside Mozilla on Monday, one that will apparently run on <a href=" hones/" rel='nofollow'>Firefox OS</a>. While the event on June 3rd before <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Computex</a> will showcase a new device of some description, neither Foxconn nor Mozilla have hinted at what it could be, but rumblings suggest it could end up being a tablet instead of a smartphone running the new mobile operating system. <br />
<br />
An "industry insider" speaking <a href="" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Focus Taiwan</em> said it would "likely be a tablet," though this has not been confirmed elsewhere as of yet. Considering <a href=" biggest.clients/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">yesterday's report</a> that Foxconn may be moving into selling its own accessories in order to expand its business from manufacturing devices for other companies, a move to launch its own smartphone or tablet may be a wise move for the company. <br />
<br />
Firefox OS is aimed at providing manufacturers and carriers an open and low-cost operating system aimed at developing markets. Primarily using apps created with HTML5, developer devices from <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Geeksphone</a> of Spain have started shipping, whie other manufacturers including LG, ZTE, and <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Alcatel</a> have signed up to work on making devices specifically for the software.
