Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. As a reminder, Jolla’s first Sailfish OS-running device has been released in November 2013 for online pre-ordering and reached the DNA shops, in Finland in mid-December. It will be also available in Denmark via Three and in Portugal, sold by SmarTeki9, but the date is not known yet. Also, the Jolla smartphone got the 5th place on DNA’s best-seller smartphone in December, being in front of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c and Samsung Galaxy S4 4G+.
Now, Elisa, another Finnish telecom operator is interested in the Jolla smartphone. Since the Jolla device is not mass produced, this partnership would be good for both Jolla and Elisa.
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications. Apps can be installed via the Jolla Store, which will provide both Jolla and Android apps, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
