Firefox OS-powered Geeksphone Peak+ now available for pre-order

Spain’s Geeksphone was the first to launch Firefox OS smartphones when it offered the Keon and Peak developer preview phones back in April. Aimed for at developers than end users, they sold out the very first day they went on sale. Geeksphone this week began taking pre-orders for its first follow-up device, the Peak+. As the name implies, it is an upgraded version of the Peak.

Key differences from its predecessor include having Firefox OS 1.1 pre-installed and twice the amount of RAM of the Peak.
