Geeksphone Peak+ surfaces as another Firefox OS phone. Pre-orders now open for €149 plus tax
At the beginning of this month, the first ever phone to run Firefox OS was launched in Spain. The ZTE Open has been available since July 2, and the Alcatel One Touch Fire is on the way too. But these aren’t the only Firefox OS devices in the pipeline for the next few months.
After having released two developer-friendly Firefox OS phones, Geeksphone is back, this time with a consumer-facing offering. It’s called Geeksphone Peak+, and it’s now available for pre-order.
The Peak+ is decidedly higher-end than the ZTE Open and Alcatel One Touch Fire, but it’s still a midrange device and nothing more. That’s fine though, since Mozilla hasn’t positioned Firefox OS as a competitor to iOS and high-end Androids, but rather low-end Androids and Nokia’s Asha all-touch phones.
The Geeksphone Peak+ has a 4.3-inch 540×960 qHD IPS touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front camera, a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSPA, FM radio, GPS, and a 1,800 mAh battery.
You can pre-order a Peak+ right now for €149 (without taxes). It will start shipping in mid-September.
