A first glimpse of the new ‘multiOS’ handset from Geeksphone (from Engadget)

Though we were able to tell you all about the Geeksphone Revolution’s specs last month, the gestation-themed stock photo gave no clue as to how it actuallylooked. Now, we finally have pictures of the Firefox OS / Android dual-boot handset (there’s another after the break) and a further description of how it’ll work. First off, Geeksphone is now referring to the Firefox OS option as “Boot2Gecko by Mozilla,” harkening back to the original (awful) name for some reason. Nomenclature aside, it’ll come with Android installed (a version hasn’t been specified yet) and you’ll be able to choose Boot2Gecko or “any other community supported ROM” — but it won’t be dual-boot. You will get OTA updates for whichever OS option you choose though, along with the previously reported dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, a 4.7-inch 960 x 540 screen, 1GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel front / 2-megapixel back camera. There’s still no sign of a release date and, more importantly, the price — that’ll no doubt weed out those willing try the MultiOS device from those who prefer the devil they know.
