    Looks promising. Though slightly on the higher side at 350 Euros.

    To be honest, I'll be glad to back up anything that works and gives Windows/iOS/Android a run for their money.

    This has been created by ex-Nokia employees who were involved in the short lived N9 with the MeeGo OS. (I believe thebanik had a N9).

    Some people have managed to port Sailfish to their N9, though with limited functionality.

    Some more images of the device -

    All images sourced from Jolla online shop -

    Tech specs read as follows -

    Screen -

    • Multi Touch upto 5 fingers
    • Corning Gorilla Glass 2
    Processor -
    • CPU - Dual-core 1.4 GHz Krait 200
    • GPU - Adreno 305
    • Chipset - Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
    • OS - Sailfish OS, v1, upgradable to v1.0.5
    Dimensions -
    • Height: 131 mm
    • Width: 68 mm
    • Thickness: 9.9 mm
    • Weight: 141 g
    Imaging - As seen in the image above, the camera does offer a lot of options to tweak the image capture. however hardware is as follows -

    • 8MP, LED flash
    • Video - 1080p @ 30 FPS
    • Front - 2MP
    Battery - 2100 mAH, user removable.

    Ram/ROM -

    • Ram - 1GB
    • ROM - 16GB
    • Expandable - via MicroSD upto 64GB
    This phone also has NFC, no wireless charging.

    oh and the good bit, you can run android apps on it as well :D

    if the porting to N9 is successful, I'll probably look at picking up an N9 here ( ~ 4-5k) and trying this OS on it.

    Main reason for people selling their N9s? Whatsapp does not work on it. lol.

    Looks like another Bada to me, Android OS in a different flavour.

    Well, this is what Google envisioned with Android as an opensource OS, this to Android what Ubuntu is to Linux.

    This is based on MeeGo right? So more Linux than Android.

    It's based on Linux (So is Android), however uses driver, libraries and frameworks similar to Android.

    TAblets are not for me, they have no use for me.
    I consume a lot of media but I am still a producer not consumer, I need a better laptop though.
