European launch coming on February 20 for interesting looking hybrid
When Firefox OS first started going on devices, Geeksphone was first out of the gate with some of the developer devices. While it hasn't exactly taken off, we're a little further down the line and Geeksphone is back with its latest Firefox OS smartphone. Only this one is a dual-booter with our favorite mobile OS. This hybrid smartphone is coming to market in Europe later this month on Feb. 20 for €289, though early buyers may get a €20 discount.
Inside the Revolution is a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel CPU, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage with a microSD card slot. Out front is a 4.7-inch qHD display, and round back there's an 8MP camera. The 2000mAh battery isn't huge, but then Intel devices have generally done pretty well on battery life in the past.
The official spec list doesn't list which exact version of Android we're looking at, but all the images suggest some form of Jelly Bean. It's definitely in the mid-range when it comes to hardware, but Geeksphone promises a seamless switch to Firefox OS, or any other "community supported flavor of an OS."
There's no word on any non-European availability right now either, and with the price working out around $395 you'd have to be pretty set on getting one to import at that price.
