Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. It looks like Geeksphone, the Spanish mobile manufacturer will also create high end smartphones called “Geeksphone Revolution”, capable of running both Android and Firefox OS.
For now, we don’t know the hardware specs, features, starting price and the shipping date of the new Geeksphone. All we know is that the processor will be good enough to power Google’s Android, the phone being offered with either Android and Firefox OS.
For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geeksphone. The next Firefox OS based phone will be Huawei Ascend Y300II, which has better hardware specs than all the existing smartphones using Mozilla’s OS. It has been also ported experimentally on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, but there are some apps that don’t work yet.
Also, there are rumors that Tizen and Firefox OS will unify, in order to have more chances to become important Android and iOS competitors.
