Now, new information has been leaked into the press. It looks like DNA will release the first 450 Jolla smartphones (in Finland) in the first ordering period, starting with the 27th of November 2013, while the rest of the Sailfish OS powered devices will be available at the beginning of December.
The mobile operators have also assured the Sailfish OS enthusiasts that they have enough Jolla smartphones for everybody that has pre-ordered such a device.
For those who don’t know, 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 and Yandex Store.
