The guys from Jolla held an official launch event for their Sailfish mobile OS and showcased the platform to the general public. The company has already signed deals with ST-Ericsson for the chipsets that will power its future smartphones, and with the Finnish carrier DNA, who will be offering them.

The successor of Meego promises unrivaled multitasking capabilities, and packs quite a few cool new features. We’ll start off with the official promo video, which shows the cool looks of the platform.

You should also check out this link for a hands-on demo video that demonstrates the impressive multitasking interface, as well as the unique Ambience feature.

Jolla has also found a clever way to tackle the app shortage issue that each new platform inevitably faces - the upcoming Sailfish OS is said to be compatible with most Android apps without any extra modifications.

It all looks very promising and we are hoping that we'll soon see actual hardware powered by Sailfish.
