Firefox OS finds partner in Foxconn, device to debut on June 3rd

Mozilla and Foxconn announced a partnership which will also result in a product announcement of a device running the new operating system next Monday, June 3rd.  Mozilla has been able to put together an impressive array of partners as it prepares to unleash its new mobile operating system upon the world. Among those partners are LG, Alcatel, Qualcomm, KDDI, Telefonica, T-Mobile and others.

We do not know what brand the device will bear when it is announced next week. Foxconn manufactures devices for a number of companies, most notably Apple. However, it has been speculated that Foxconn has been seeking to expand its client base due to concerns about being too reliant on Apple.

Could we be looking at a Mozilla branded device, or perhaps a Foxconn brand? Will it be a smartphone or tablet? We are not holding our breath for a tablet, but with the recent report that Foxconn will be making its own line of accessories, it is not too far of a stretch to think that a self-branded line of electronics might find their way out of the giant manufacturer.

More will certainly be revealed next Monday.
