Holler at the Jolla Tablet. After its super-successful crowdfunding campaign where it achieved its $380,000 goal in just 2 hours, the Jolla Tablet is nearly ready to ship out to its backers.

It runs Sailfish OS, rather than Android, which promises to have better multitasking and uses gesture controls to make navigation swift and simple.

After the first batches reach the crowdfunding backers, the tablet will finally go on general release globally, via Jolla's website, with a price of $249, which converts to around £160 or AU$320.

It's not super-stylish, but I've certainly seen worse looking tablets.
