Specs for the Geeksphone Revolution were confirmed earlier in the month. There was also some talk about the pricing and availability, however those weren't being confirmed at the time. Flash forward till today though, and those missing details have been shared. The Geeksphone Revolution will be available for purchase beginning on February 20th.

The price will be €239, which is close to the earlier estimates. If you remember back, it was said the Revolution would be selling for a bit more than €200. This means the handset will be selling for roughly $325 in terms of US dollars.

Otherwise, as we had already known, the Geeksphone Revolution will be a dual-boot smartphone that is powered by an Intel processor. In this case that means the handset will be running Android, and Mozilla's Boot2Gecko, aka, Firefox OS. The specifics for the processor have it listed as a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560.

Specs for the Revolution include a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display, 4GB of internal storage, microSD card slot (with support for cards up to 32GB), 1GB of RAM, a 2000 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording at 30 frames-per-second.

Of course, the basics such as WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, AGPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, and microUSB for charging can be expected. And lastly, the folks at Geekphone have the Revolution sitting with the following in terms of network connectivity.

  • HSPA/WCDMA: 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100MHz
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz

    Dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560, 4.7-inch IPS LCD display, 4GB of internal storage for $329? That’s going on the price of a Nexus 5. I’d rather just get a $199 16GB Moto G. Or the soon to be released Zenfone 5 at $150 or the 6 at $200…….
