The battery died on my Keon, I was disappointed to find Geeksphone were 
unable to sell me a replacement.

I also have a Geeksphone Revolution (Intel based phone), I use it to 
tether my tablet to while I'm out and about.  Nice enough phone for the 
price, but unable to use the standard builds (because of the 
non-standard CPU) so stuck on version 1.3.

The beautiful thing about the FFOS UI is that it's all open source HTML, 
CSS and JavaScript and as such quite straightforward to hack on if 
you're dissatisfied with some things.  The Firefox Developer Edition 
browser has an emulator infrastructure built in you can use with the 
source code from GitHub.
