Firefox OS is a Linux kernel-based open-source operating system for mobile devices & now runs on a reference design tablet of Ingenic. This tablet can run either Android 4.4 KitKat, or an experimental version of Firefox OS.

Featuring a 9.7” screen with 1024 x 768 resolution, the tablet is a compact tablet sporting relatively small bezels. For connectivity the tablet features a Micro USB & a Mini HDMI port. A pair of stereo speakers sits at the bottom on the front.

Processing power includes a 1.2 GHz dual-core, MIPS32-based Ingenic JZ4780 processor featuring a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, a H.264/VP8-capable video decoder (up to 1080p at 30 fps)

Wireless connectivity is handled by 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.0 support. The tablet also features front & rear cameras for video conferencing or for casual photo taking & HD video recording (no further specs know about the cameras)

In addition, developers have full access to the Firefox Marketplace so they can easily create, test & publish cross-platform HTML5 apps.
