Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. Geeksphone, the Spanish mobile phone manufacturer has announced their next smartphone, called Geeksphone Revolution a while ago.
For now, a full list of hardware specifications is not available and so, we only know that the phone will have 2000 mAh LiPo exchangeable battery, a 4.7 touchscreen display and most probably an Intel processor. Also, it will be available with either Firefox OS and Android.
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.
