As you may know, Jolla is a company formed from ex-Nokia employees, the developers that were responsible of the Linux-based Nemo, MeeGo and Maemo operating systems.
Until know, they have released a single version of the Jolla phone, running Sailfish OS, a MeeGo-like OS that uses RPM packages and has an out-of-the-box graphical interface. Because they did not manage to sell enough smartphones, they have decided to ditch the hardware business and focus only on improving their Sailfish OS.
Jolla has managed to raise over $2 million from a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, to manufacture a tablet that uses Sailfish OS. The initial plan was to ship the tablets to the Kickstarter backers in May 2015, but the first batch of tablets was sent in September.
The problem is that Jolla cannot produce tablets for everybody that has supported the campaign and some users will not get anything at all. The vendor says they will reward their fans, but … The ones expecting tablets are most likely hard to please.
The first Jolla tablet is powered by an Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor, has a 7.85 inch display, 2048 x 1536 pixel IPS display, 2 GB of RAM memory, 64 GB of internal storage and a 4.450 mAh battery.
