Hon Hai Precision and Mozilla to Tag Team a Firefox Tablet
Foxconn's parent company is said to be working with Mozilla to launch a mobile device that runs on Firefox. Details are almost nonexistent, though according to Focus Taiwan and the "industry insider" it spoke with, the device is likely to be a tablet, not a smartphone.
There's already a Firefox phone, but it's only for developers.
It's an interesting move by Hon Hai Precision, which generates more than half of its revenues from Apple. Therein lies the motivation for Foxconn's parent firm, which is reportedly looking to reduce its dependence on Apple, especially as demand for iPhone and iPad devices slows down a bit. Hon Hai Precision also builds electronics for companies like Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Nokia, and several other well known tech companies.
