Leaked document shows Firefox OS on your router and computer keyboard




Hipertextual, a Spanish-language blog has managed to secure documents where possible future devices with Firefox OS to be seen in. This includes Firefox Pi ‘,’ Firefox Path ‘and’ Firefox Hub ‘in addition to the already existing devices, such as TVs, smartphones and sticks.

It is an internal document which examines the organization behind the OS any future products. VentureBeat looked upon contact with Mozilla and received the answer that it actually comes to product concepts coined by one of the developers. Also confirmed chief legal officer and business DENELLE Dixon Thayer that different devices are conceived as prototypes. Whether these products are ever actually built, was not confirmed by Dixon Thayer.

Firefox Pi is intended for the Raspberry Pi and combined in the document with a complete keyboard with integrated trackpad. The computer keyboard would be aimed at emerging markets and should even be connected to an analog TV. As an example are mentioned in the millions of disused TVs in India. Firefox Hub is a router with the goal to become the real center of the “digital home.” The focus is on parental control and privacy. The controls should be easy and clear them. Simultaneously, the device acts as a web server for personal applications and personal data. Firefox Pad is expressly not intended for the discerning tablet user but for the elderly and late adopters who simply want to use the Web. In other words, it is just a browser without apps.

Firefox Stick is an HDMI stick that functions as a Chromecast or other similar product. Therefore all must at some Panasonic TVs embedded Firefox OS are also available to others. An attempt by a Kickstarter project to install Firefox OS on an HDMI stick, failed.

It seems in any case to indicate that Mozilla had plenty of ideas and has Firefox OS. That image recently ran a dent on the alleged announcement that Mozilla would stop Firefox OS for phones. This later proved to be incorrect in whole: it came to stop cooperation with providers. Probably the target Android phones to flash Firefox OS.
