Mozilla and Foxconn working on Firefox tablet
Mozilla and Foxconn are apparently gearing up to introduce a new device based on Firefox OS and early suggestions are that it will be a tablet.
The device should be shown off to the public at Computex in a matter of days and if it is indeed a tablet, it will be a first for the fledgling operating system.
Firefox OS has yet to take off, and although there are a couple of phones out, they are practically nothing more than developer toys at the moment.
Focus Taiwan reports that Foxconn is trying to expand its list of partners and reduce its reliance on Apple. Although it is best known for churning out iPhones, Foxconn also makes tons of gear for the likes of Nokia and Hewlett Packard.
Taking the first steps in a virgin market makes sense, although we are not sure Firefox OS can take off. Blackberry and Microsoft are struggling and even Apple is having trouble keeping up with the Android onslaught. There simply doesn’t appear to be much room for yet another mobile platform.
