Geeksphone Revolution to let you choose between Android and Boot2Gecko
Geeksphone co-founder Javier Aguera hints that the Revolution won't be like prior Firefox OS models which are entry level phones. Aguera suggests that the phone will be a high-end model, but will be priced to sell. And actually, it is not technically Firefox OS that will be on the phone. That name is reserved for the phones manufactured by a company connected to a carrier. The OS used on the Revolution is actually called Boot2Gecko.
Two carriers, Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom, have been at the vanguard of the early days of the Firefox OS launch, making phones with the platform available in Brazil and Poland. On Thursday, another carrier signed up. Norway's Telenor has started selling Firefox OS flavored phones.In a statement on Thursday, Rolv-Erik Spilling, head of Telenor Digital, said, "I am pleased to see that our customers in Serbia, Hungary, and Montenegro will be able to enjoy mobile phones on Firefox OS, providing them with high-quality Internet experience before Christmas. Through this launch, we are one step closer to connecting the next billion customers to the Web."
Meanwhile, Geeksphone is obviously serious about building the Revolution and we're really looking forward to see what the specs will be for the device. One thing we do know, when customers order the phone they will be able to specify which OS they want running the phone, Android or Boot2Gecko.

what i would like to see is that Full Windows 8 on the I-Mate.
"The i-mate Intelegent is a 4.7-inch handset running the full windows desktop OS on a Clover Trail CPU with 2GB RAM and 64GB storage. "
