Firefox OS tablet: image and specs leaked
Mozilla's own Asa Dotzle has leaked the specs of the first tablet powered by Firefox OS. First, a little detail about the device. Manufactured by Foxconn, the slate (codenamed Flatfish) is actually the Infocus New Tab F1. This is a low-end tablet built by the contract manufacturer. Infocus sells its slate online for $150 and Mozilla could try to get these pups to market at a price under $100.

The tablet is equipped with a 10.1 inch IPS display with resolution of 1280 x 800. Under the hood is a quad-core 1GHz Allwinner CPU that employs the ARM Cortex A-7, with a PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU. 2GB of RAM is on board along with 32GB of native storage. A microSD slot is included for those desirous of more storage. Back and front-facing snappers weigh in at 5MP and 2MP respectively, and a 7000mAh battery powers the whole kit and kaboodle. With support for 802.11b/g/n, this is a Wi-Fi only slab. The dimensions are 266mm x 170mm x 9.7mm.

Dotzler didn't provide any information about a launch date or pricing, but as we said, Mozilla could have a decent business if it can get these slabs priced under $100.

Eh, there's nothing much to read up on. It's more or less a beta. It's trial and error right now. It would be on par with Tizen, if it were any devices released.

U really think that at the stage where some one like Microsoft is struggling to get traction on their mobile platform.. when BlackBerry gets bankrupt..webos is turned into a tv os..someone else is going to make it...then u must be dreaming.. Don't get me wrong..I'm all for options and alternatives..but this...tizen..already dead. Unless s game changer comes out..u know...like ios was..

I, too, am intrigued by this fox that seems to be on fire. Foxfire, you say? What is this? I'm waiting for a prompt reply.

You can buy Android-powered Infocus tablet for $150 only from one seller, but its relal market value is more than $300.

Anything can happen at that price even the biggest critic would buy one its all about marketing and of course hardware in the box. Dont forget to load it up with needed apps and have the ability to play games.
