Mozilla has been pushing its Firefox OS as the next big thing to hit the mobile devices segment. While this will bring about a change in the usual Android – iOS circle that we have been embroiled in with Windows providing some respite in between, we were curious as to what the first tablet device will be like running the brand new OS.
Fortunately, we have healthy insights here, thanks to company insider Asa Dotzler who has made available the specs of Mozilla’s very first tablet. To begin with, the tablet will have a 10.1 inch display lit up by 1280 X 800 number of pixels. On the other side of it lies a A31 quad core Cortex A7 chip rated at 1 GHz complemented by a PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU. Onboard memory will be 2 GB along with 16 GB of internal storage.
Besides, there will also be a 2 and 5 megapixel camera along the front and rear respectively along with the usual micro USB port and a 3.5 mm slot to plug in headphones or other externals. Powering the device is a 7000 mAh battery though actual runtimes aren’t available. The other crucial things missing are the when and how much bits. While a launch does not seems too far away given the company having received the first batch of devices from Foxconn, pricing will be important for the tablet to make a mark. Mozilla has chosen MWC event to first launch its mobile OS and with MWC 2014 could well serve as the perfect setting to launch the tablet as well.
