Revolution boots to Android, Firefox OS, early-bird sale touted

Geeksphone will be launching its dual-booting smartphone in Spain on February 20th, the company has revealed. The Geeksphone Revolution, a smartphone the company teased earlier this year, will be able to switch between Android and Firefox OS, something the company has plenty of experience with through its existing Peak+, Peak, and Keon devices.

Engadget reports that the company will be making the handset available for 289 euro ($395) at launch, just four days before Mobile World Congress. Though it is not clear if this will be the same price if the Revolution is offered in the US or other regions, the company will be holding an online early-bird sale, bringing the price down further to 269 euro ($367).

Using a dual-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.6GHz, the Revolution has a 4.7-inch IPS qHD display 4GB of storage expandable by microSD, and 1GB of RAM. On the back is an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, joined by a 1.3-megapixel front-facing version, while the 3G connectivity is supplemented by Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, and GPS. The dual-OS capability will apparently start off with the device booting to Android, with the user able to switch to Boot2Gecko by Mozilla or another "community-supported flavor" of OS, with one-click OTA updates also touted.
