Leak shows specs of upcoming Firefox OS tablet
While only a few Firefox OS-powered smartphones have been released so far, the first tablet that runs Mozilla's mobile operating system is already being tested. The specs of this device have been revealed at the end of last week by the Product Director for the Firefox desktop browser, Asa Dotzler.
The prototype is called InFocus New tab F1 and according to The Verge, the manufacturer behind it is Foxconn. While the technical specs are not high-end, they look very good for a mid-range 10-inch tablet:
- Processor: A31 (ARM Cortex A7) quad-core 1.0 GHz with PowerVR SGX544 MP2 graphics
- Memory/Storage: 2 GB DDR3; 16 GB internal Flash storage and microSD support
- Display: 10.1 IPS capacitive multi-touch with 1,280X800 pixels
- Cameras: 2 MP front, 5 MP back
- Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, micro USB, Bluetooth, GPS, gyroscope
- Battery: 7,000 mAh
- Dimensions: 10.47X6.69X0.38 inches
Since the device with the specs mentioned above is not ready to hit any markets yet, the final product could show some improvements, especially in the screen and connectivity departments, as cheap LTE-enabled tablets are already available for purchase.
There is no information available regarding availability and pricing of the first Firefox OS tablet, but it is very likely that Mozilla will only release it on emerging markets. If the device proves to be successful, improved versions could hit the North American market after a while as well.
