Developers, buy your own Firefox phones from Geeksphone now!


Well it's true, there's no question about it. Geeksphone has now made available the first two developer preview smartphones running the preview version of Firefox OS, and -if you are a developer- you can buy them right now.

So, meet Keon, equipped with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4GB of ROM and 512MB of RAM memory. It features an HVGA display (3.5 inches) and a 3.1MPixel camera. It costs 91€ + taxes and you can buy it here. For more demanding developers, there's Peak, a smartphone with a 4.3 inches IPS display (qHD) Snapdragon processor running at 1.2GHz and two cameras. One reaching 8.0MPixels on the back and one more at 2.0MPixels. It shares the same memory banks as Keon (4GB ROM, 512MB RAM) and costs 149€ + taxes. You can get it from here.

Don't forget, these devices are intended for developer use only and are not available for simple, everyday users. If you are one of them, then you'll have to wait until LG, ZTE, HUawei, Alcatel and Sony announce their own Firefox devices.

According to The Next Web, Geeksphone plans to start production next week and has the ability to produce around 5.000 devices a week, given the fact that there's demand for them.
