Finnish smartphone manufacturer Jolla has passed its Indiegogo crowdfunding target -- in just over two hours -- for its first tablet, a 7.9-inch slate that runs Sailfish OS, rather than Android.
The handset maker strikes a deal to sell its Sailfish OS smartphone on Snapdeal.com, India's largest online marketplace.
Jolla's Sailfish software reaches commercial readiness -- and you'll be able to try it out as a launcher on your Android phone.
The 4G phone runs Sailfish OS, which started life as MeeGo -- software that was briefly considered the future of Nokia.
The latest upstart smart phone system, Sailfish, born within Nokia, is on sale now in the shape of the case-swapping Jolla phone.
The Jolla phone has colorful cases, runs Sailfish OS software, but uses Android apps.
Nokia is back with the N1 tablet, Jolla is taking your money, and GPS satellites are looking for dark matter in the cosmic cracks.
The company hopes to attract more hardware vendors since its mobile operating system can now run on any device that works with Android.
The open-source operating system Sailfish is "Android app compliant." Jolla hasn't said so, but that suggests you'll be able to install standard Android apps on it.
The Jolla is the first phone running Sailfish, the open-source operating system from the people who tried to get MeeGo going.
