Also, the phones are orange and white, evoking Firefox, and that’s just plain cool.
But Geeksphone has another smartphone in the works called Revolution. The name is perhaps a bit of an overstatement, and the picture of a pregnant woman as the Revolution microsite’s only photo is definitely an overwrought image (is that supposed to be a Messiah reference?), but the phone itself is certainly promising.
Wow. Let's maybe dial down the metaphoric imagery, guys.
The Revolution will have an a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor, which is equipped with Hyper-Threading technology, as well as a 4.7-inch IPS qHD display, 8MP HD camera with flash, and expandable memory. Geeksphone says that the Revolution will run Android “or other alternatives, such as a Mozilla technology based one”--meaning Firefox OS.
It seems that “or other alternatives” would be a better bet than Android, simply because the market is completely saturated with Android handsets already, and many users are keen to try out Firefox OS on a reasonable high-end smartphone.
The Revolution will be out sometime during the first quarter of 2014.
