Unfortunately, the US fans might not see it immediately, but the rest of the world will soon get its first Firefox OS tablet. The Mozilla Inc. has begun testing their browser-based operating system on the tablets and it has also developed its own tablet prototype too.
Currently, the Firefox OS runs on the smart phones and it might eventually power some smart television screens as well, but this is the first showing of it on a larger-screen device.
The Foxconn Inc.-built prototype is not the highest-end tablet in the market by any other means, but it is not the worst thing available also. The specs are just released, which say it is going to have a 10-inch, 1280 x 800 display, smart 2GB of RAM, and also 16GB of internal storage paired to a powerful 1GHz quad-core processor.
In an age of high-pixel density displays, it would be pretty much difficult for this new comer device to compete with the Retina iPads, the Nexus 10, or the Nexus 7 devices, but that has never been Mozilla's goal for their platform. Instead, the somewhat acceptable display is more like a giveaway of the company's intention to go after the emerging markets.
