Thanks dude for answering how multitasking is done on MeeGo OS. I am waiting for this phone and i won't buy any high end Android phones ever because Android has many malwares, it's not resource efficient like Symbian is, since there are NSA codes written in Android OS it spy on user, Google does the same thing. What i really hope is, something like NSA stays away from this OS and Sailfish OS provide the best multitasking out of them all like MeeGo OS can. Over 100 apps at time! That'd be great.

The pre-order campaign was already solt out! Most importantly it's for all of us, who don't like vendor locked in platforms and ecosystems, but want to live in the open wild ;)

Kaacz, 23 Jul 2013Why is still this wrong info about Java?! MIDP is java platform for dumbphones eg. Nokia S40. ... moreI suppose this might get a PhoneME port (JavaME for N9). GSMArena just put that info on almost every phone though, by the looks of it, and it's usually wrong.

So far, there's one homescreen in Sailfish OS on which only 9 applications can run(not sure about it but i have seen in a video). So, multitasking would be limited to 9 apps, correct? But if we have several homescreen which can be accessed by swiping from left to right or vice versa, then we can run 9 more apps on the homescreen. I have never used MeeGo but i have seen it in action. MeeGo can run 50 or more apps. It was the king of multitasking. What i really hope is that we can run as many apps as possible in Sailfish OS just like in MeeGo. I already have two Android phones and i am bored of them. I want a new phone with a new OS which will never ever have NSA codes and Sailfish OS is my choice.

More screens with icons are not more ergonomic.
Please do not force Android/iPhone philosophy to SailfishOS. Is Unlike. Go and buy Android/iPhone and don't destroy this awesone UX.
Why is still this wrong info about Java?! MIDP is java platform for dumbphones eg. Nokia S40. I dont know smartphone with MIDP emulator. :p
Fully featured mobile phone with unique resp. unlike OS. One of the most promising new developments and my respect to the Jolla and Sailfish teams who took the challenge.
I'm in stand-by to get one :-)
Jolla is well aware of the fact.. And dont worry.. They understand what privacy means. Unlike other OSes out there..
And the most important thing which i forgot to mention, hope Jolla would review every app for Sailfish manually and keep NSA or something like that away from the OS. We don't want our personal information to be tracked or given to the goverment. I hope Jolla wouldn't be like Google which doesn't review Android apps manually and developers get their apps live within an hour of submission and processing. I hope someone from Jolla is listening me... ): This OS is the only hope for me as i am tired of every other OS out there which tracks an user's data and sends it to NSA or the goverment. Better don't do business in the US or else NSA will catch this OS too. ): =( )= :(
Here are the things that i want to see in Sailfish OS:
More polished and modern icons(previously the icons were simple and modern but Jolla did a huge mistake by creating those different shapes icons. I want to see all the icons in same square shaped like in iOS or just give us the options to have three icons sets by defualt in the OS itself. Please don't forget to give the icons which were previously designed), ability to have 7 or more homescreens out of which on 5 homescreens, mulitasking would be possible, a notifications toggles bar which will be revealed by swiping from bottom and then swiping from bottom again(notifications toggles must have a brightness slider, wifi, gps, some general profiles such as general, silent, outdoor, meeting, data connection etc.), the option to select other keyboards, a strong video and music player like in MeeGo, no vulnerability in the OS, no apps can be modified by anyone, option to install apps from third party sites, option to add icons on the lock screen, a well desinged transparent analog clock in square shaped, a transparent dual clock with many countries and for easy to select, like in Touchwiz UI with written state name, capital name and then country name, like this: Helsinki/Finland, London/UK, Austin/USA etc., hope Sailfish OS would be resource efficient like Symbian and MeeGo, a wide range of media support, a good camera interface with pro-like settings, more games, no adwares, no games which have the option to spend money for in game powerup stuffs, hope Jolla won't distrubute the OS to every manufacturers which will let them modify it, thus avioding OS fragmentation; and managing both the hardware and software by Jolla itself, more updates to the software, always have SD card and removable battery in Jolla's next phones, a good camera tech, and a blacklist. Hope Jolla phones would sell like hotcakes worldwide.
