Dual-OS Smartphone set for pre-MWC Release


They’re not the biggest manufacturer in the world, but Spanish company Geeksphone will be releasing its latest handset this February, which has the ability to switch operating systems, just before MWC.

The Revolution, as it’s being called will be available from February 20th for around £200, and features an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor.

One key feature that is new to the Revolution is the chance to use varying operating systems, without the risk of voiding your warranty, which is not standard practice for a huge majority of smartphone manufacturers.

The hugely popular Android OS will clearly be a favourite, but users will also have the opportunity to use Mozilla’s lesser known Firfox system via Boot2Gecko.

The Revolution also boasts a 4.7” screen, 4GB of expandable internal memory, 1GB RAM and an 8 megapixel camera.

The Geeksphone handset will be at MWC in Barcelona from the 24th to the 27th February for the press and the public to play with.

Although it isn’t expected to make much of a splash here in the UK, the dual OS opportunity is definitely something worth thinking about if you fancy something new.
