The first two Firefox OS phones are already on sale they are the Keon and Peak from GeeksPhone. The two are aimed at developers and run a Developer Preview of Firefox OS, so while they might not build up a user base they should help devs have apps ready by the time the consumer-oriented Firefox phones hit the stores.

The prices are as announced a few days ago the Keon costs 91 and the Peak is 149. Keep in mind that those prices do not include taxes. The phones will be shipped worldwide.



The higher end phone, the Peak, packs a 4.3 qHD screen, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU with 512MB RAM, 8MP camera and 1,800mAh battery. The Keon has a 3.5 HVGA screen, 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB RAM, 3MP camera and 1,580mAh battery.

There have been reports that the GeeksPhone site is experiencing issues and your order might not get though. As a side note, you can also use a Sony Xperia E for development purposes, Sony released a ROM that puts Firefox OS on the entry-level Android phone (its specs are similar to that of the Keon).

Thanks to James for the tip!

Understand the fundamentals of how this system is being developed (free of corporation and based on truly open standards) and your comment will be surely disproved.

This is the largest joke of the year. It will probably more productive to hit your head on the wall directly than spending time develope a new phone OS.
