Geeksphone reveals details for its 'Revolution' Android, Firefox OS dual-boot phone Geeksphone, the Spanish startup trying to disrupt the smartphone world, has revealed specs and images for its upcoming Revolution handset that runs on Android and Firefox OS.
The device allows for "seamless" switching between Android and Boot2Gecko (Firefox OS).

With a black colorway on the front and white on the back, the device resembles the Nexus 5 but includes the Geeksphone logo on top and three buttons on the bottom. The device features a 4.7-inch IPS qHD display.

Under the hood is a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage and a microSD card slot. Additionally, the smartphone has a 2,000 mAh battery and dual 1.3MP/8MP cameras.

The company says the device will sell for 200 and begin shipping on February 14th.

I have a ZTE Open that I play around with, and I really love firefox os, but I think that dual booting it with android is against its purpose.

Interestingly the Nexus 5 which the article compares it to also has a mod that allows you to dual boot firefox OS (as well as others). I'm seamlessly allowed to boot between Stock android, CyanogenMod 11, Ubuntu Touch, and FirefoxOS although the last two are definitely still under development.

I believe you are right about the main purpose of using a FireFox OS phone .... is to get rid of most of the Google tracking !

Why dual boot if that will allow Google to track you !

Good Luck and Take Care
