Geeksphone’s Android/Firefox booting Revolution is now up for order at €222 or $300 on the Geeksphone store.
The Geeksphone Revolution is an entry-level to mid-ranged smartphone that has the capability to run either Google’s Android OS or an open source version of Mozilla’s Firefox OS, Boot2Gecko. It is perhaps the dev-friendliness of the device that Geeksphone would be banking on, since $300 today can get you much more for on-paper specifications than what the Geeksphone Revolution brings.
The device features a 4.7-inch 960 x 540p qHD IPS screen, an Intel 1.6GHz Atom Z2560 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB on-board storage + microSD and an imaging department featuring an 8 mega-pixel rear camera along with a 1.3 mega-pixel front-facer. Connectivity is taken care of by the usual set, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS along with GSM and 3G (HSPA).
By default, the Geeksphone Revolution runs Android. The ‘install another OS’ option in the system updates menu is where you would want to be if you wish to install another OS (Boot2Gecko).
