Rumour : Firefox Tablet to Be Unveiled on June 3

Rumour : Firefox Tablet to Be Unveiled on June 3

Mozilla Corp has reportedly teamed up with Foxconn, the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronics, in order to make a tablet running Firefox OS. It is expected that the product will be formally unveiled at a press event during Computex 2013 on June 3.

Mozilla has previously announced its partners of telecom operators and manufacturers, such as Deutsche Telekom, Sprint, SingTel, LG and Huawei in its Firefox OS project during this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain in February.

Mozilla also began selling two preview versions of mobile phones running the Firefox OS, which are manufactured by Spanish company GeeksPhone, in late April, targeting developers.

More important than who is making the phones/tablets is who is marketing and distributing the phones/tabs. I hope these tabs dont turn out like Microsoft Surfaces which are apparently gathering in warehouses away from customers who want to buy them.

I knew this would definetely come up in your post of any kind, this is so predictable.
If you have some info on the godown where these tablets are stored then I could get you some orders.. !
and if not, then this is for you. ! this is how MS wants to be and if we follow your theory then we would have millions of tablets lying around in warehouses.. ain't it .?
Surface sales. MS expects to sell 25 million Surface devices in FY2014.

Enterprise tablets. Microsoft expects to become the number one enterprise tablets provider in FY 2014.

Retail tablet sales. Microsoft expects to become the number two provider of tablets at retail in FY 2014.

Education. Microsoft plans to at least bid for every available education tablet opportunity in FY 2014.

Distribution. Microsoft expects Surface to become the top tablet choice of its distribution partners, which will drive Surface sales through resellers.

The UI, features, functions and technology are different obviously. I suggest you check out some of the previous threads/videos that we have posted about the firefox OS.

Every electronics company on earth now wants jump in to the tablet market. Firefox is just one of them. If the product is good for its price it may sell well or end up like the surface.
