Mozilla say Firefox OS tablet is on the way


Hot on the heels of the Smartphone release Chief Technology Officer for Mozilla, Brendan Eich says that a tablet based on the new Firefox OS will be coming soon, but, true to form of anyone making forward looking statements, did not say when “soon” actually is.

Eich created the JavaScript programming language and is an advocate of open web-based technologies which Firefox OS is built upon. Mozilla has a multi-faceted plan to offer multiple mobile solutions with its new operating system as well as ideas beyond mobile.

Citing developer interest for a Firefox smartphone, and the availability of Android smartphones as the drivers, Eich explained it was a simple decision to go the smartphone route initially,

“So we went to smartphones, but we’re going to get to tablets ASAP.”

Mozilla has partnered with Foxconn to build some Firefox OS equipment and Foxconn is in the process of hiring thousands of software engineers to develop HTML5 applications for Firefox.
