According to Geeksphone, the dual-booting Revolution will let you switch between Android and Mozilla’s browser-centric Firefox OS with a simple 1-touch system. There’re also indications that the smartphone will be able to run other mobile OSs as well.
Hopefully Firefox OS will have smoothed out the numerous rough edges we saw on the Geeksphone Peak at last year’s MWC, where sluggish performance and slow app switching overshadowed the benefits of the OS.

The Geeksphone Revolution is on sale directly from Geeksphone’s site for €222 with worldwide shipping available.
