Mozilla & Gecko clones Geeksphone will be launching the first Firefox OS devices tomorrow. "With the startup shipping worldwide and pricing the devices reasonably low, you can bet that many developers who've been eager to start building apps for Firefox OS will be tempted by Geeksphone's offering and not interested in waiting for the majors to come to market. Geeksphone can theoretically manufacture up to roughly 5000 devices per day, but that all depends on if there's enough demand down the line. Either way, we've confirmed that Geeksphone will start shipping the first ordered phones by the end of this week."

The shopping cart is throwing a SQL error indicating that the maximum number of database connections has been reached. I'm guessing they weren't prepared for the volume of traffic they would have at launch. I hope they resolve the issue soon because I'd really like to get the dual core version.

You just have to be persistent.

Probably they'll make more. I'm still pondering about the huuuuge shipping cost.

37 EUR cheapest (4-5 days delivery via UPS). I wouldn't mind waiting 2-3 weeks and paying 10 EUR for normal delivery.

Wow! That's too much ;)
That's why I and my other 2 friends want to get 3 Peaks in single order. This will reduce overall cost for all of us ;)

I suggest you do the same. Find friends who want Firefox OS devices and order them in bulk ;)

If only I'd have some friends who weren't interested only by the latest iPhone or Samsung phone.

I am curious what the prices of the two models are in $US. When I go to their online shop, I only get a message saying that they are out of stock.
