Amirali2, 20 May 2013The design looks good but I will promise you that It won't feel good in your hand because the ... moreWhy you need 8 cores when you can do all the work with just 2??? have you ever used a N9?? just singlecore and 50 apps running in multitask, no freeze task like android or even iOS??? it's not about the cores, it's about the OS...

OddvarM, 07 Jul 2013Bluetooth 3. Why not Bluetooth 4?Bluetooth version, like most of the specs, hasn't been confirmed yet - it's likely just guesswork on GSMArena's part.

When the meego was discontinued by Nokia, the team came out and started the Jolla. Sailfish OS is the reincarnation of the meego as we can call it, though its actually based on the Mer core. Jolla device is for those who want to upgrade from their N900, N9 and also other android/apple iphone people who got bored of their OS.

On a side note, I couldn’t help but notice that Apples new Iphone iteration due for an Autumn release features something very similar to Jolla’s ‘ambience’ function – coincidence, I think not. In IOS7, it appears that by changing the wallpaper on the homescreen, you also change the look and feel of the phone which seems (like the ambience feature in Sailfish) to reflect the colours in your wallpaper image.
A lot of the other features in IOS7 seem to have been heavily influenced by MeeGO, Web OS and many other operating systems. There go Apple again taking from others and calling it their own!
So let’s support the real innovators and help get Jolla up there with the big boys!

There is absolutely no technical reason why 50 concurrent apps should not be possible under sailfish, after all it's the same base that allowed that type of multitasking on the n9(00).
The only limiting factor here is how they implement the switcher and how it scales with more running apps, if it just makes every preview smaller and smaller then at some point it will just not be practical anymore...
This is being developed by the old staff at Nokia (when Microsoft bought Nokia, the staff left and joined Jolla, which had the old management from Nokia) the same people that used to work on Symbian, which we know runs a very small footprint with equally small apps (of course sans multitasking) based on the above and that we know that a core team of streamlined experienced people with one of the best track records in the industry who had the unique opportunity to reinvent themselves are about to come out with a new product I simply can't wait to get my hands on one.

I don't think Sailfish OS can run 50 apps in real time like that of Nokia N9, i could be wrong about it. So far, i have seen only 9 apps run at the same time on the home screen, though it's enough but i like to have more. Hope Jolla would at least let 20 apps run at a time.

NokiaRasta, 26 Jun 2013how about a quad-core processor??? think about it...sailfish dont need quadcore cpu to run smooth , dualcore is far enough (remember its not lagdroid )
snapdragon 800, 22 Jun 2013Dual core cpu is deprecated! Snapdragon 800 is right choice. Anything from Qualcomm is never ever the right choice.

More power's nice and all, but generally unnecessary for anything but Android.

check the benchmark result.

Considering that their OS runs smooth even on the single core N9 I would not go so fast with saying Dual-core wan't be good.
More cores only helps for multi taksing (at which this OS is the absolute king of the hill) and applications that were specifically optimized for multi-core architectures, otherwise you can have 10 cores but still only one will actually be working.
