Geeksphone Keon takes Firefox OS to the FCC

Spanish e-tailer Geeksphone already made it known that its Firefox OS handsets would be available (as developer previews) starting early next week. So, it comes as no surprise to find the Keon, the lower-end of its two white-labeled devices, has just passed through the FCC's labs. From a fully fleshed user manual to product shots and RF reports, most everything about the 3.5-inch bright orange-backed handset is available for public consumption. Bearing model number C8666GP, the meager Keon reps an HVGA display, 1,580mAh Li-ion battery, 1GHz single-core Snapdragon S17225A processor and support for GPRS/GSM/WCDMA 850MHz and 1900Mhz bands, making this global handset usable in the states on AT&T should you opt for an import. It's expected to cost around €91 (about $120 USD) when it lands, so if you care to take a low-cost crack at Gary Kovacs' newly minted OS, you know where to look.
