Today we informed all of the folks that applied for free tablet hardware through the Tablet Contribution Program of the results. As expected, demand far outpaced available devices so applicants will receive an email letting them know if they’ve been selected or not and next steps.
We will have additional hardware programs coming, including a 7″ tablet and the Firefox OS Flame reference phone so if you didn’t get a tablet in this round, don’t worry. There’s more to come.
If you applied and you didn’t see an email in your inbox today, please check your junk/spam folder. The email was from the address Mozilla@e.mozilla.org and the subject will have the “Firefox OS Tablet” in it.
This is really quite exciting — the first tablet device for Firefox OS and the beginning of a community project to make progress ahead of the Mozilla Corporation’s core team. If you want to learn more about the program, visit the TCP wiki page.
And last but not least, I want to say a big thank you to some amazing Mozillians who stepped up to make this program go. Thank you Colin Frei, Alfredos (fredy) Damkalis, Andrew Truong (feer56), Andre Garzia, Sebastian Hengst, Gabriel Gómez, Viking KARWUR, Anuj Agarwal, Benlamara Abderahemane, Benny Chandra, Mehmood Ali, Luigi Tedone, Steve Lee, Shahmir Khan, Jennie Rose Halperin, and Rami Khader. This program is moving because you all are moving it. Thank you.
