Foxconn Developing Devices for Mozilla Firefox

During a press event in Taipei, Foxconn revealed it is developing up to eight devices, including smartphones, tablets, TVs, electronic whiteboards, and outdoor displays, that use the Firefox platform to integrate hardware, software, content, and online services.

“Currently, Foxconn is executing a vision of “eight screens, one network, and one cloud” with all our strength,” said Foxconn innovation Digital System Business Group (iDSBG) General Manager Young Liu. “Besides the native advantages of hardware manufacturing, Foxconn is also developing a brand new integrated approach to providing hardware, software, content, and services. Because of our shared vision, we are excited to work with Mozilla. Firefox OS from Mozilla is based on HTML5 and open web technologies. The whole idea perfectly matches the strategies promoted by Foxconn.”

“We are very excited about partnering with Foxconn and we are glad to see more partners supporting the Firefox OS and the open Web,” said Mozilla Taiwan Chief Executive Li Gong.

However, despite speculation that a Firefox OS tablet would be unveiled during the press event, no concrete details about the product were revealed.
