Panasonic has launched the world’s first Smart TVs based on Mozilla’s Firefox OS in Europe. The Smart TV lineup was unveiled at the CES and will be available worldwide in the coming months.
The Panasonic 2015 Smart TV lineup includes these models powered by Firefox OS: CR850, CR730, CX800, CX750, CX700 and CX680
Mozilla says that these Smart TVs are optimized for HTML5 to provide strong performance of Web apps and come with a new intuitive and customizable user interface which allows quick access to favorite channels, apps, websites and content on other devices.
“We’re happy to partner with Panasonic to bring the first Smart TVs powered by Firefox OS to the world,” said Andreas Gal, Mozilla CTO. “With Firefox and Firefox OS powered devices, users can enjoy a custom and connected Web experience and take their favorite content (apps, videos, photos, websites) across devices without being locked into one proprietary ecosystem or brand.”
Firefox OS is the first truly open mobile platform built entirely on Web technologies, bringing more choice and control to users, developers, operators and hardware manufacturers.
