Geeksphone teases the Revolution, a high-end smartphone that can run either Android or Firefox OS

Geeksphone, the first company to bring a Firefox OS smartphone to market, is today teasing a new high-end handset called the Revolution.

The Spanish startup is tight-lipped at the moment, but we know that it will run either Android or Firefox OS. Advanced users will also be able to install Mozilla’s mobile operating system as a ROM on the Android build, GigaOM reports.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Geeksphone says it’ll be a premium device with a high-performance processor. “Once again we will revolutionize the world of mobile network,” Javier Agüera, the company’s co-founder said. “We are also confident that we will surprise everyone by its very high performance and it’s very competitively priced”.

Any customer that pre-ordered the Peak+, the latest version of its Peak Firefox OS smartphone, will be upgraded to the Revolution automatically. According to GigaOM, this is because the company ran into a number of problems with its supply chain in Asia, which it says would have been “impossible to avoid.”

A teaser site for the Revolution has gone live, but it’s devoid of any useful information right now. Still, a high-end device that could potentially run both Android and Firefox OS ? The Revolution would be a versatile and unique tool for developers, if nothing else.
