The Firefox OS is proclaiming "a truly open open platform" and increasing its share at first glance, but there seems to be a problem that it is necessary to have the Firefox OS touches more easily, and KDDI etc. 4 We are planning to put out a terminal with an unprecedented form factor in 2016 in cooperation with the company.

From the basic parts such as telephone and text to the latest technologies such as VoLTE, mail, camera, browsing, navigation, music player and so on, it seems that it plans to equip the balance well and looks like "Feature phone" folding Expression "," Slide type "," Straight style ". Although it feels like "straight style" does not change much from the current smart phone, "folding smart phone" and "sliding smart phone" are few in number on Android terminals, so they are likely to be conspicuous.

Because development is not yet proceeded at this time, although the exhibition has not yet been done at the venue, I am looking forward to the extent to which Firefox OS will bite as a third power different from Android · iOS.
