The First Jolla Smartphone Runs With Wayland

Jolla, pronounced “yoh-lah”, a company created by former Nokia developers has announced their first smartphone a while ago.

As you may already know, Jolla is a daring project, since it uses Sailfish OS, a Meego Linux derivate, in order to be compartible with the Android apps. Also, as a display server, it uses Wayland, with some tweakings, to make it have support also for Android GPU drivers.
