The Geeksphone Peak+ is now up for pre order
Firefox OS is something that is intriguing and yet a little worrying at the same time. Intriguing as I like new and different devices, worrying due to loss of investment if I did buy one.

Geeksphone were basically the first manufacturer to release a Firefox device to the public, be it a developer device or not.

A few months back they released the Keon and the Peak and now thanks to community feedback they’re going to sell a slightly higher spec model, the Peak+

An improved version of our most powerful device to date, the Peak+ boasts a 4.3″ qHD screen, more memory and a superior look & feel with premium materials. The Open Web, in your hands.

Spec wise it as follows:

– CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 8225 1.2Ghz x2.
– UMTS 850/1900/2100 (3G HSPA).
– GSM 850/900/1800/1900 (2G EDGE).
– Screen 4.3″ qHD IPS Multitouch.
– Camera 8 MP (back) + 2 MP (front).
– 4 GB (ROM) and 1 GB (RAM).
-bMicroSD, Wifi N, Light & Prox. Sensor, G-Sensor, GPS, MicroUSB, Flash (camera).
– Battery 1800 mAh.

If you’re interested the Geeksphone Peak+ is available here for pre order, they are asking €149 and they’ll be shipped mid September.

Are you tempted by Firefox OS? I sure am I just think I’ll end with a paperweight in a few months time.

    149 Euro sure is expensive for a paperweight, but it’s very cheap for a phone. I’d personally love to try one of these, and the spec looks pretty good to me considering the price. I’d also love to try one of the Ubuntu phones also, as they appear to be equally interesting.

    I hope you end up getting one in the end.
