Report: Abitcool is developing a Chromecast competitor using Firefox OS

Posted Jun 22, 2014

Mozilla is preparing to launch an HDMI-streaming stick that will let users fling content from compatible mobile or web apps to an HDTV. The device is manufactured by Abitcool and will be available later this year with global distribution. Mozilla has not named the product publicly, but it will be announced in the next few months. Mozilla has been providing Abitcool with engineering support to help them deploy Firefox OS for the device.

“This is not a Mozilla project and we do not make devices. Firefox OS is an open platform freely available for any company to build on without restrictions. This means companies can experiment with different form factors that run Firefox OS,” said a Mozilla spokesperson in a statement to PULSE 2.0.
