Geeksphone Peak+ With 1GB RAM Goes On Pre-order For €150

Geeksphone has started taking pre-orders for the Peak+ Firefox-powered phone. Geeksphone typically makes phones targeted at devs or tech savvy enthusiast, but says the Peak+ is also ready for consumers.

It's a small upgrade over the regular Peak – the Random-Access Memory (RAM) has been doubled to 1GB and the material used for the exterior has been changed to create it feel better to the touch. The phone will come with Firefox Operating System (OS) 1.1 out of the box, the same version the other two (Peak and Keon) recently got.

Other than that, you're still getting a Snapdragon 8225 S4 Play chipset (dual-core Cortex-A5 at 1.2GHz, Adreno 203 GPU), 4.3" IPS classy screen qHD (540 x 960) resolution, 4GB storage plus microSD cards slot and a 1,800mAh battery.

The Geeksphone Peak+ pre-order is at a promo price of €150 ($200), the same as the original Peak. This price will go up slightly after the initial batch of units is srecent out (there's no indication what the standard price will be). The original Peak srecent out fairly quickly.

If you pre-order now, Geeksphone will ship your Peak+ in mid-September.

Update: We were contacted by a Mozilla spokesperson who wanted to clarify that while based on the Boot to Gecko project, the recent smartphone isn't technically a Firefox Operating System (OS) device.

"Today, Geeksphone announced the pre-sale of a recent device based on Boot to Gecko technology. We want to clarify that this recent phone that was announced is based on Boot to Gecko technology with pre-release software, but is not a certified or supported Firefox Operating System (OS) device."
