The device will feature Geeksphone's proprietary MultiOS technology which the company describes as a "1-click OTA system". The Revolution runs Android by default, but the user can "seamlessly" switch to Firefox OS or an alternative via a "user-friendly graphical interface".

App Support? Unless, the app is using native binaries heavily, then the app support question should not be an issue. Android apps use dex files to sort of run in its own Dalvik VM. Not dissimilar to Java apps.

Haven't heard much about Firefox OS lately. I know it is linux, but why not use Ubuntu. I know you can switch to basically whatever you want, but I would want Ubuntu by default. The specs look nice on paper, but will there be any issues with app compatibility. I guess ill hold my judgement till it is released.

Cool in concept and execution, but kind of pointless.

On a side note, these guys can expect a cease-and-desist letter for trademark infringement from LG and/or Verizon.
