Firefox-Keon-PeakAlthough it’s still a little rough around the edges, Mozilla’s Firefox OS will make its commercial debut inside two budget-friendly smartphones next week. The Keon and Peak were initially created as developer devices by GeeksPhone, but apparently the public’s curiosity convinced the Spanish-based company to make them available for the entire world.

We don’t advise you to get any of the two as primary smartphones, but, seeing as they’re dirt-cheap, they could act as back-up devices. Or, you know, they could just satisfy your curiosity of checking out if iOS and Android really do have worthy competition.

The Keon is to cost a mere €91 ($119) and will pack a modest Qualcomm S1 1 GHz CPU and 512 MB of RAM inside a body measuring 3.5 inches in diagonal. The rest of the specs are sub-par too, but for 120 bucks they’re fairly decent – 4 GB of internal memory, microSD support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 1,580 mAh battery.

As for the Peak, that’s a little pricier, at €149 ($195), but it’s understandable looking at the spec sheet – 4.3-inch qHD screen, S4 dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 MP rear snapper, 2 MP front cam, 1,800 mAh battery.

Keep in mind the above mentioned prices do not include taxes, so you might end up paying quite a little extra depending of the country you live in.
