Geeksphone are working on a new smartphone that will feature a dual OS, the handset will come with Google’s Android OS and also an alternative OS.
The handsets main OS will be Android, the second OS will be an auxiliary one that you will be able to dual boot into, the second OS will be based on Mozilla’s Firefox OS, you can see a statement from Geeksphone below.
The name Firefox OS and the logo Firefox are registered trademarks owned by Mozilla. Up to this date, there is no certification process known by Geeksphone for its use by independent manufacturers (not associated with a mobile carrier). When this process is available, Geeksphone will obtain such authorization for its terminals. Since it’s a branding issue, code and functionality is exactly the same.
The phone may change OS with just a couple clicks, through a user friendly graphical interface. In this manner, it may also receive updates OTA or install additional software packages.
Geeksphone have said that as well as the OS based on Mozilla’s mobile OS, the handset could also boot into other community developed builds.
