Mozilla has announced its new partnership with Hon Hai, parent of the Foxconn company, with big plans to develop mobile devices running Firefox OS. However, we are curious and have to wait until next week to find out what Mozilla said he will unveil on June 3 when a new partnership is officially announced.
Based on some of the rumors circulating before, most would consider a smartphone device, but according to a report from an insider from a company that spoke to Focus Taiwan , the device to be launched next week was “probably” a tablet. No details are given about what the tablet might look like in the hardware used, but we won’t have to wait long to find out about that.
Reportedly, Foxconn is looking for several new clients to help produce hardware for its products, one of the biggest is Apple, which relies heavily on the manufacturing company. Other news said Foxconn was shifting from the contract as manufacturing and putting some emphasis on retail efforts. However, this information has not been confirmed by Hon Hai.
In addition, nothing else is known about the device or other important details, but we will let you know on June 3 when everything is officially announced. This announcement follows the successful launch of 1,000 Firefox OS Geeksphone handsets on April 24, which includes Peak handsets and Keon handset developers.
On May 9, Mozilla announced “Phones for Apps for Firefox OS,” which will supply HTML5 developers with the free Keon Geeksphone handset, an orange smartphone in the picture above. The plan is to facilitate the growth of applications for the Firefox OS platform, giving users a decent application library when the first round of handsets is present for the commercial market.
