Digitimes Research: Firefox OS shifting to TV stick technology

Danny Kuo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei 0

While Firefox OS was previously used in smartphone followed by limited use in tablet devices, the software is now shifting to TV sticks and computer learning applications, according to Digitimes Research.

The global smartphone market is cooling down and providing more diversified Android devices has become a focal point for vendors and even telecom operators. In December 2014, consumers will see KDDI's new Firefox OS-based smartphones hit the market in Japan in addition to Firefox OS TV stick technology.

Mozilla will also release Firefox OS-based based computer applications that support Raspberry Pi, showing that it aims to close the gap on competition between Android, as well as further push the technology into the market, added Digitimes Research.
