Geeksphone Firefox phone on sale today

Geeksphone is a Spanish company that is pioneering Firefox OS smartphones, and today is the momentous day that they finally go on sale.


The Keon, priced at 91 Euros and the Peak at 149 Euros (both excluding VAT), are the first of their kind, so are for the adventurous, developers and early adopters out there.

We have an order placed by a member of the Coolsmartphone team who falls into at least one of those categories, so I’m sure we’ll get his opinions as soon as it lands on his doormat.

The Keon is described as, “a light and versatile, but also powerful developer preview device which has all the hardware features you need to start developing software for Firefox OS in a performant environment” as well as “a great companion for your daily tasks.”

We first encountered Firefox OS on the ZTE on the ZTE Open at MWC earlier this year. These videos give you the gist of what we saw:

The Geeksphone website keeps crashing due to high demand, which is kind of a good sign as at least it proves there’s interest! Do persist if you’re keen to buy one though.

We’ve just seen this tweet from @geeksphone:

Wow initial previsions were largely surpassed! Devices will be back on stock in a few hours, thanks for your support!

    I’m no developer but so can’t really see too much advantage in buying this phone… yet. I’m very eager to hear what it’s like though, I think the more systems out there the richer the whole smartphone experience will get. I still lament the passing of WebOS and look forward to news from Jolla Mobile and their new Sailfish OS…

    Not an early adopter me, I’ll wait until it is a bit older and crusty round the edges before thinks about giving it a go.
