Geeksphone Revolution hybrid Firefox, Android smartphone now on sale Geeksphone, the Spanish startup trying to disrupt the smartphone world, has made their Revolution phone available this week for order, after months of teasing.
The device, which is notable because it can run both Firefox OS and Android, sells for 222 Euros ($305 USD) before taxes.

Unlike previous reports, however, the phone is not a true dual-boot system. You can not have both operating systems installed at the same time and choose to boot whichever you like. You can flash the OS of choice using pre-installed recovery tools, and you can only boot that OS. Geeksphone will support whichever OS you choose with updates.

The smartphone features a 4.7-inch 960 x 540 resolution display and 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. There is no LTE support but there is HSPA+.
