Geeksphone Revolution adds another OS to its repertoire, gets a price cut


One of the few phones on the market which officially support more than just one OS, the Geeksphone Revolution just received a price cut and support for one of the most popular derivatives of Android — CyanogenMod.

The smartphone was launched in the beginning of 2014, and with support for Android as well as Boot2Gecko, the device promised a lot. However, thanks to a $300 price tag and specs that didn’t match, the device didn’t do as well as the Spanish maker would’ve hoped.

However, the device is now available for €199 or $275, which although isn’t a lot lesser than the initial amount but cheaper nonetheless. In addition to receiving a price cut, the Revolution also gets a new OS, as mentioned before, in CyanogenMod. CyanogenMod, as you’d probably be aware, is among the most popular 3rd party ROMs among Android users. You can learn more about CyanogenMod on their official website.

Here’s what the Geeksphone Revolution comes with: a 4.7-inch qHD screen, a dual-core Intel processor (Z2560), 1GB of RAM, 4GB of ROM + microSD storage, and a 2000mAh battery besides the regular radio features.

Does the prospect of a dual boot (multiple boot, actually) smartphone like the Geeksphone Revolution excite you?

      Right, the Zenfone 5 from ASUS, for example, its more powerful (Intel Z2580, 2 GB RAM/ 16 GB ROM), bigger (5′) and cheaper (199.00 $)
