Geeksphone Revolution dual-boot Android and Firefox OS smartphone now on sale for €222

If you’ve ever wanted a smartphone that could run both Android and Firefox OS, you’re in luck. Geeksphone is now accepting orders for the Revolution, the first commercial handset to do just that.

Geeksphone is a Spanish startup best known for the Keon and Peak, a pair of low-end, developer-focused Firefox OS smartphones that launched ahead of commercial handsets by ZTE and Alcatel.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

The Revolution replaces the Peak+, another Firefox OS handset that Geeksphone was building, with a 4.7-inch IPS qHD display, a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage, backed up by a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of extra space.

The device is powered by a 2,000 mAh battery and boasts an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, alongside a 1.3-megapixel variant on the front. It’s available on the Geeksphone site for €222.31 and worldwide shipping is available.

It’s unclear whether there’s a market for a dual-OS smartphone running both Android and Firefox OS. The Revolution is a unique device though and should appeal to developers, modders and gadget fans who are keen to try Mozilla’s mobile OS on a slightly more powerful handset.
