Finnish begin up Jolla is launching the primary Sailfish OS good cellphone on 27 November 2013. These Jolla good telephones can be out there via Finnish community supplier DNA. The preliminary Finnish launch can be then prolonged to a number of different nations ranging from December.
What’s Sailfish OS?
In the event you by no means heard of Sailfish OS, let me provide you with some background to it. In 2010, Intel and Nokia grouped collectively to develop an open supply (?) cell OS named MeeGo. Linux Basis was additionally concerned within the challenge. However in 2011, Nokia ditched this challenge to go forward with Home windows cell OS. Intel and Linux joined arms with Samsung who was working by itself cell OS Bada. Collectively they’re engaged on a brand new cell OS named Tizen and the primary Tizen cellphone by Samsung can be releasing early subsequent yr from the sooner deliberate date of August 2013.
So what occurred to MeeGo then?? When Nokia ditched MeeGo for Home windows, it irked a number of the Nokia staff engaged on it. Collectively they determined to proceed with it and fashioned their very own firm Jolla in the identical nation which gave us Nokia (and Linus) i.e. Finland.
Options and value of Jolla good cellphone:
Looking on the specification of Jolla, I’d say its a good pack. Essential options are:
dual-core 1.four GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
1 GB RAM
16 GB storage with exterior Micro SD card slot
four.5-inch 960×540 qHD show with 5 level multi-touch Gorilla glass
eight MP rear and a couple of MP entrance digital camera
Weight 141 gram
That’s not all, like Blackberry, you’ll be able to run many of the Android apps via its compatibility layer. So, in case should you assume Sailfish gained’t have sufficient apps to start with, this come as a breather.
The distinctive function about Jolla telephones is “The Different Half“. Its an interchangeable backplate just like what you noticed in iPhone 5C however it isn’t simply plastic and colour. Once you change the backplate of Jolla, it additionally adjustments the consumer interface (colour, themes and so forth). Not solely this, backplates can even have further reminiscence storage. In brief, altering the backplates will change the cellphone in lots of features.

With these options and a price ticket of Euro 399, I’d say it may very well be a good purchase. The value tag retains it within the league of Google Nexus 5 which can be a good cellphone (and never nice).
OS, OS in every single place
With Jolla releasing on November 27, Firefox smartphones already in market and Tizen coming in January 2014 its a flurry of recent good cellphone OS. Speaking of which, we have now but to see an actual good cellphone from Ubuntu as their final try and crowdfund their very own good cellphone Ubuntu Edge failed.
