Foxconn recruiting a 3000-dev army to work on Firefox OS apps
posted by Victor H. / Jun 21, 2013, 9:23 AM
The 3000 coders will develop HTML5 applications for the newborn web-based platform. Originally, Foxconn planned on employing 1000 developers for its partnership with Mozilla and the Firefox OS, but it seems to have reevaluated the importance of the new OS.
Foxconn has also confirmed that it is building five Firefox devices (for other OEMs). So far Alcatel, LG, ZTE and Huawei have all jumped on the new platform and 18 operators across the globe will carry the affordable devices. The first devices should end up on store shelves in the very near future.

If they're gonna start making they're own phones they're going to want to hire some lawyers as well. You know... lawsuits n' all.

The aspect of Firefox os I'm most curious about is the high ends. Sony is rumoured to be making just that for next year. They already have a low end Xperia originally with android, but changed to Firefox os in a developer video.
