    Geeks'Phone

    We were one of the first to bring you news of Geeks’Phone ONE, and we’ve kept you updated along the way. Things have certainly changed for the ONE along its journey through development. Some of the more interesting features have been dropped, but replaced with new ones to compensate. We’re posting everything we have and know on this device, including exclusive photos of the older prototype models that will no longer see the light of day. Instead, we are left with a fresh and clean cut design from a small start-up in Spain. We say small, but its clear they’ve got the right support behind them.

    The phone should be available by the end of the year. According to their press release, they are waiting on a few distribution deals to become finalized before they can guarantee roll out to Western Europe. Speaking to Javier Agüera Reneses, COO & PR guy for Geeks’Phone, it was made clear that the device will be unlocked and available through a number of different distributers. The price point of the device is around €260 (US$375). I’ll let you do any necessary conversions due to the fluctuating exchange rates at the moment. Without further ado, please find a complete list of all known specifications and our exclusive picture gallery of the ONE as development has progressed. Enjoy.
