Rodrigo Silva-Ramos, Geeksphone´s co-founder, said “Our new Geeksphone ‘Revolution’ device is the result of a Spanish company’s commitment to innovation. We want to offer our users the possibility to choose between different operating systems in a single device. We also want to give them one of the most advanced microprocessors on the market.”
