Firefox OS-powered Geeksphone Keon Lands in the Philippines

Hold your horses before celebrating … Geeksphone Keon units powered by Mozilla Firefox OS are NOT YET available locally. But, I got a package from UPS this afternoon containing the Keon units I promised to those who presented their apps during the Manila leg of Firefox OS App Days last January (awarding of the units will happen on Sunday).

GeeksPhone is a Spanish start-up company and producer of smartphones founded in early 2009 by Javier Ag├╝era and Rodrigo Silva-Ramos. They specialize in the development, promotion and commercialization of open source mobile telephony solutions.

Geeksphone Keon and Peak are the very first commercially available Firefox OS powered devices (Developers Preview) in the planet. And the units that had arrived today are the very first of its kind in the country.

If you are planning to get either a Keon or a Peak from Geeksphone, just head straight at their website (NOTE: Mozilla is NOT selling the devices) if they had already replenished their stocks.
