Last year Foxconn announced that they will jointly develop and manufacture as such as 5 Firefox OS devices including a Tablet. Last year we even leaked the specs of the same Quad-Core tablet. This year already Mozilla announced from the stage of CES 2014 about the upcoming Development plans related to Tablets powered by Firefox OS. Soon they will reveal the details about the Tablet UI development program. Initially they have given the following tablet specs as a hint:
