Im quite happy with my Note II, will be soon updated to 4.3
Thankgod i came to android, i lost all hope in these new OSes and im quite sure once ppl use and get frustrated cuz they wobt have viber whatsapp fb app skype temple run, or whatever, java in browser whatever
I've learnt my lesson, i loved it, but i can breathe in easily using android power
Idk what lag is, ram iant a prob for me, popup video is awesome, 2 apps side by side in 1 screeen is awesome, the s pen is wonderful
Truely an advice get an android, nkt askong u to buy galaxy Y and cry for all ram and os updates
Get a powerful fone which u can afford, 900million android fones worldwide isnt a joke
Thats success

Due to hackers attack on Android OS, Google has implemented NSA codes into Android OS. The National Security Agency (NSA) has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian.The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats,the document says. The program facilitates extensive, in-depth surveillance on live communications and stored information. The law allows for the targeting of any customers of participating firms who live outside the US, or those Americans whose communications include people outside the US.It also opens the possibility of communications made entirely within the US being collected without warrants. So, basically your personal data is no longer secure. Your personal infomartion goes to the NSA no matter where you are and which Android phone you've. Even Google is spying on your mails, search history. Some Android apps take pictures automatically and sends it to NSA, your gallery is also sent to NSA, the thumbnails to be exact. Android phones tracks your location and sends the information to Google which then would either go to NSA or Google will use it to advance their maps. You are no longer secure. Google doesn’t review Android apps manually and developers get their apps live within an hour of submission and processing, that app could be a malware created to invade your privacy. In Android, any Tom and Harry can create an app or a virus with a PC and make it look legit. It's ridiculous that a game requires permissions such as read phone state and identity, send SMS without your consent etc., Google gives you free apps for your personal information with ads. Unfortunately, a vulnerability in Android lets apps to be modified by anyone and once if you install your private information will directly go to the person who modified it. Android has a lot of apps but if you look around the net, Android apps are often buggy and some of them do not work the way they promise to (read virus prone). That's the problem on Android. It's not a secure OS. Most of the things in Android was copied from Symbian OS. In Ginger bread, lag has always been there and same story in Jellybean. It's just the animations which try to hide the lags but fails to do so in Jellybean. Sailfish OS is the future. The OS was demoed on Nokia N900 and Nokia N9,it was running smooth. So, it's a resource efficient OS and supports applications from other operating systems and hopefully apps will be sandboxed.

After N9 and MeeGo with Harmattan UI has been butchered by All-We-Know-Who the MER project thanks to Carsten Munk has been turned into MEego Reconstructed project. Sailfish is built on the MER CORE distribution (everything below UI and above kernel soft adaptations to a particular CPU). On it has been put Jolla UI, but if the Harmattan UI would be used it would look exactly N9. This construction of Sailfish OS: Jolla UI + MER core + MER compatible kernel adapted for a particular CPU makes endless possibilities like N9 has. Also that mean that ANY platform with CPU which has kernel adopted to working with MER core (now: ARM, x86, TI) can be booted and used with Sailfish OS, in reality that means most of existing. That is why Linux MeeGo Sailfish OS and Jolla are continuation of Linux MeeGo Harmattan and Nokia N9, also because the same people has built them both. And if something was possible for Harmattan + N9 then this is more then possible for Sailfish + Jolla. And Jolla's hardware is better, but Sailfish requirements are still minimal requirements of Linux MeeGo. So this all allow to expect better performance then N9. Also note: Android software used on Sailfish means that like Android have dalvik then Jolla have Myriard's AlienDalvik - so they run on Jolla like native, with the same speed like at Android. Only trouble can happen if software has UI coded not according to Android standard, so buttons can be out of screen or something like this.

In fact Saifish is MeeGo, of course more developed with MER project (MER = MEego Reconstructed, see about merproject.org), but still it is. Different is UI as Harmattan was intelectual property of Nokia then Jolla developed own and better UI - Sailfish UI. So similarities are visible immidiately.

In Android a soft is "frozen" but in Sailfish/MeeGo it is RUNNING in the background. This allows to use many soft together, note: native Sailfish soft and Andrriod soft launched with Myriard's Aliendalvik (builtin the OS permanently) can be switched and used in the same time without any lags etc. just because of Linux multitasking abilities. It is more precisely described in wikipedia and Sailfish OS wiki, you will easly find links. Sailfish continues legacy of MeeGo (hence Nokia's Maemo & Intel's MObilin) and also good practicies of Symbian. You will try it and you will love it - 99% people do so. And 1% are payied haters and black PR in duty to propagate lies about.

If anyone have doubts then there is a reference: Jolla will be better incarnation of Nokia N9, what in general mean that it will be not worse then the legendary N9. Linux Sailfish is FULL linux and also more and significantly developed Linux MeeGo, so there is no limitations in numbers of apps (N9 without lags can run 20), a limitation can be amount fo RAM and how big is a single soft. Also there is "second half" which can add additional RAM or hardware or software, not only colours. Those who were at Jolla's presentations were able to see and evaluate OS abilities and hardware. As presented were preproduction prototypes so not all details were shown, but only those already fixed. For me most wanted is, not shown, dual sim or tri sim options. As it is for asian market it is obvious that at last dual sim is the must. And so on so on. Jolla was presented many times and there are several reviews, be serious guys.

Dont waste money dont waste energy
Buy something else
Nokia Maemo powered N900 was my beast for 2 yrs but i should tell u it did give me a hard time
I've shifted to galaxy note 2 and my life is so charmed nw, cuz of android power and support
The world breathes android and iOS, dont be cornered by getting such device trust me
If u cobsider buying this
First see whats happening with the N9 Swipe Meego monster
It looks cool it is cool its v new and v clean
But believe me its not for the ones who want a stable fone for their lives
Yeah its android app compatible but thats all crap, theres no comparison to android supported phone and android phone
Get a launcher in ur android and thats it
Im sure android monsters will develop this in chreaper snd cleaner versiin with more support
So why waste on this?
Get htc samsung sony if u think im right
Oh and PS : N900 runs 32 apps at a time and is PURE multitasking
But it still couldnt do any better
Apps like whatsapp facebook viber what we breathe in and out are not available so whats the use?

Anyway - what we do know of what you asked. It theoretically can run more than 9 apps, we're talking Linux here. Whether the number of graphical apps is restricted due to the active covers is another thing entirely, but it would seem strange if Jolla took this approach. They might alternatively use more than one screen of covers, or only show covers for 9 apps while running more in the background.

The OS is indeed pretty resource efficient. Jolla's first demos showed Sailfish running well on the Nokia N950, using a single-core Cortex-A8.

It's likely to support media formats which gstreamer can (i.e. loads!), as with the N9. However, due to the improved chipset, it shouldn't have the N9's problem with HD content.

Info Jolla have teased so far on the Other Half suggests there are direct data and power connections, though what standards these follow (if any) are unknown. If this is correct, both a hardware keyboard or external flash are possible. However, this is entirely reliant on halves being produced for these purposes.

Not sure quite what you mean by a 'lock key', but the power button does lock the device as in many phones.

Wondering if this phone can run more than 9 apps, picture quality of the device, how powerful will be the flash, if there will be some recovery option in case if you do something wrong that'd corrupt the OS, support for different keyboards, if apps can be installed from third party sites, the other half will be a qwerty keyboard or a powerful flash, how powerful the battery would be, if the OS is resource efficient, if native video call would be possible, if there will be Nokia Maps or not, how many features it will have, if it will be a 720p or 1080p screen, if the device can play all major media formats, if there will be a lock key. Give it an in depth review come on.

"Can it run more then X apps?"
It's full multitasking Linux, unless any application decides to somehow 'eat' all the memory you can run however many you want/need.

There is no reason to believe the limit on multitaksing in jolla is not memory bound just like any other OS, the interface on the homescreen may or may not support only showing 9 applications simultaniously but if that is the case there will surely be a way of handling more applications, you can probably even try out how that is handled in the SailfishOS SDK.

Even the n900 (this devices' grandfather) can run quite a few applications simultaniously, this is a video of the n900 being pushed pretty far:

For the "radio", will it have an FM transmitter? That's really missing from most new phones but it is why I keep my N8 in my pocket!
