Geeksphone Revolution, a multi-OS powered handset, launching February 20th
Back in November, we told you about the Geeksphone Revolution, a handset that runs Android by default, but can be switched to the Boot2Gekko OS or a custom ROM "seamlessly". And with Geekphone's 1-click OTA system, the second OS can be kept up-to-date.

Nearly two weeks ago, we showed you the specs on the Revolution. To reiterate, the phone offers a 4.7 inch screen and has Intel inside in the form of a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor. The rest of the specs include 1GB of RAM, 4GB of native storage that can be added to thanks to the 32GB capacity microSD slot and a 2000mAh battery. On back is an 8MP snapper with a 2MP camera in front.

So how much would you pay for a phone with multiple personalities? Geeksphone is launching the handset in Europe on February 20th at a price of 289 EUR ($395 USD). Order early online and Geeksphone will let this unit go for 269 EUR ($368 USD). So far, there isn't any word about this Revolution making its way to the U.S.

Is there truly demand out there for a handset that can run multiple operating systems, or is this Revolution a less than earth-shattering event?

The useful devices for the geeks. Multiple customizations and OS are awesome.

Having that intel processor would make running ubuntu touch very enticing.

should have been a 4th gen core i7 - would love to see benchmarks with that one.
