Spreadtrum Communications, Inc. and Mozilla Team Up to Deliver Turnkey Firefox OS Reference Designs with Spreadtrum's Entry-Level Smartphone Chipsets
Feb 23 14
Spreadtrum Communications Inc. and Mozilla announced that they have teamed up to deliver turnkey Firefox OS reference designs with Spreadtrum's entry-level smartphone chipsets. These solutions expand the global accessibility of open Web smartphones to first-time and entry-level smartphone buyers by reducing the time and cost required for handset makers to bring these devices to market. Spreadtrum and Mozilla have now completed the integration of Firefox OS with several of Spreadtrum's WCDMA and EDGE smartphone chipsets, including the SC6821, unveiled by Spreadtrum as the industry's first chipset for $25 smartphones. These smartphones are available for demos at Mozilla's booth (3C30) at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona. At Mobile World Congress, Spreadtrum unveiled the SC6821, its new smartphone chipset that redefines the entry level of the global smartphone market. The chipset is designed with a unique low memory configuration and high level of integration that dramatically reduces the total bill of materials required to develop low-end smartphones. With this chipset, handset makers will be able to bring to market smartphones with 3.5" HVGA touchscreens, integrated WiFi, Bluetooth, FM and camera functions, the advanced phone and browser features of Firefox OS, and access to a rich ecosystem of web and HTML5 applications, at prices similar to much more minimally featured budget feature phones. Firefox OS smartphones are the first devices powered completely by Web technologies to deliver the performance, personalization and price users want in a smartphone with a beautiful, intuitive and easy-to-use experience that is unmatched by other phones. Firefox OS has all the things users need from a smartphone as well as the things they want like built-in social integration with Facebook and Twitter, HERE Maps with offline capabilities, much-loved features like the Firefox Web browser, the Firefox Marketplace for apps and more. Firefox OS features a brand new concept for smartphones -- an adaptive app search that literally transforms the phone to meet a user's needs and interests at any moment. Firefox OS offers Mozilla-pioneered WebAPIs that unlock the power of the Web and enable developers to build fun and rich app experiences that were previously only available to proprietary native apps, which are fragmented by platform and not portable. Spreadtrum and Mozilla have completed the integration of Firefox OS with Spreadtrum's SC6821 and SC7710 WCDMA smartphone chipsets, and expect to complete a turnkey reference design for the SC7715, Spreadtrum's single-core WCDMA smartphone chipset with integrated connectivity, next month. Spreadtrum and Mozilla's collaboration will extend across Spreadtrum's full chipset portfolio.
Mozilla Launches Beta Version of its Touch-Enabled Firefox Browser for Windows 8 and 8.1
Feb 7 14
Mozilla launched a beta version of its touch-enabled Firefox browser for Windows 8 and 8.1, fulfilling a promise to put the application on the road to a final release next month. Saddled with the name 'Firefox for Windows 8 Touch', the browser shipped as part of Firefox 28 Beta, one of the three build channels Mozilla maintains. The others, Aurora and Release, are rougher pre-beta and more polished final versions, respectively. Firefox 28 will ship in Release form on March 18. There's no guarantee that the new touch-enabled browser will be part of that promotion, however.
Mozilla Corporation Releases Firefox 27
Feb 4 14
Mozilla released Firefox 27, giving users of the open-source browser new security features and improved performance. There are 13 security advisories attached to the Firefox 27 release, four of them ranked as being critical. As is common in nearly all Firefox release updates, one of the critical updates is for a group of vulnerabilities that Mozilla labels 'Miscellaneous memory safety hazards.' There is also a critical fix for a use-after-free memory error reported to Mozilla by way of Hewlett-Packard's Zero Day Initiative. Use-after-free errors enable attackers to potentially leverage legitimate memory space to launch arbitrary code. In addition, Firefox 27 provides a fix for a download dialog box window issue that potentially could have enabled a spoofing attack. Among the more interesting flaws fixed in Firefox 27 is one rated as having low impact that could enable an attacker to reset a user's profile. Firefox 27 also includes default support for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 specification. Mozilla is a little later than its browser peers in providing full default support for TLS 1.2. Google Chrome 30, Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 and Apple Safari 7 already support the spec. From a performance perspective, Firefox 27 now supports the SPDY 3.1 protocol. SPDY is a Web protocol effort first begun by Google in 2011 with the goal of providing accelerated transport.
