    Default Jolla Reveals the First Sailfish OS Smartphone, Arriving in 2013 for €400/$515


    As expected, Finnish company Jolla has just revealed its first smartphone, which is set to arrive on the market by the end of 2013.

    According to the handset maker, the availability of its smartphone is subject to demand in local markets. It appears that the Jolla phone will be initially released in European countries with more countries to follow.

    Those who wish to support Jolla by pre-ordering the smartphone will be able to do so for only €400/$515, including applicable VAT in Europe, but excluding shipping costs, duties and any local taxes. Check it out here.

    Jolla’s Sailfish OS phone will be launched on the market with colorful replaceable casings that are called “Other Half.”

    The device features a Jolla original design with ample 4.5-inch Estrade capacitive touchscreen display. It also packs a dual-core processor, but for now, there are no additional details on the type of CPU.

    Jolla has also confirmed that its Sailfish-based smartphone will also be packed with 4G support, but supported countries will be defined closer to shipment date, so there’s no telling which regions will get this feature.

    On the inside, the handset packs 16GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card. No word on the amount of RAM yet, but we expect it to come with at least 1GB of RAM.

    There’s also an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash and video recording, but there’s no mention of a secondary camera for video calls.

    Given the fact that the smartphone features changeable back cover, Jolla phone’s battery is user-replaceable. It is powered by gesture-based Sailfish OS and is compatible with Android applications.

    The latter has just been confirmed by the company, though Jolla encourages developers to start creating Sailfish apps in order to support the new operating system. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.

    I like the clean design and color scheme.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    Ex-Nokia developers unveil 'Jolla', aim to prove Nokia wrong about ditching MeeGo for Windows Phone

    by Ron on May 20, 2013 - 09:25AM



    For those who recall, Nokia switched to Microsoft's Windows Phone platform back in 2011 and had shut down its MeeGo software team as a result. Now, that team is back from the dead with a new smartphone called "Jolla."

    Jolla was founded by Nokia's former MeeGo software developers and their primary goal is to prove to Nokia that they were wrong by dropping the MeeGo technology in favor of Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. Powered by 70 employees and 11 million Euros, Jolla wants to make an impact in the mobile market space.

    According to the company, the ability for Jolla to download and run Android apps makes it different from all the other operating systems out there. Jolla also added that the dominance of Android and Apple isn't going to be "permanent" and will change as the market changes.

    The new Jolla smartphone features a 4.5 inch display, 8mp camera, 4G capable, and is priced at 399 Euros or $510. The Jolla smartphone runs on the MeeGo based Sailfish operating system. Take a look at the video below showcasing Jolla.
