open source or not, it will still be better than windows phone.. cant do sh*t wif it
Thephonegeek, 22 Nov 2012Oh! I looked up in Wikipedia and they said Sailfish isn't open source. But maybe they were wro... moreAccording to news in finland, Sailfish is open source OS. Personally I dont care if its open source or not.
I wait for sailfish phone with qwerty keyboard. Currently using nokia symbian, n95 8gb and I hope that it doesnt break down before sailfish phone with qwerty keyboard comes out. I dislike android/IOS/WP.
JBL, 22 Nov 2012It's like a combination of windows phone 8 and android UI..!No it does not.
LLooks like a windows phone and android mock up. Tbh it looks quite good. Wats the glasses at the end for

at 00:49 u can clearly see the android sigh at the bottom this is android 4.1 Jelly beans cant fool an android man :D ha ha ha JOLLA a HELLY BEANS copy
too early to say if it's a great OS, by the video showed seems boring and maybe similar to BB10? just my thoughts
jbpianist28, 22 Nov 2012I have a feeling nokia are going to have jolla sailfish on there phones next year there is a good chance of nokia using jolla as a secondary os once elop term ends
Terrible touch response on the 2nd video showing the multi-tasking features, not impressed.

it's beautiful. the typography is somewhat like borrowed from windows phone...but a bit smaller.
but overall its beautiful.
Jolla, thats the kind of company I'd like to work for some day. Sure, making money is a motive but not the number one motive. Once you love what you do and you're making enough to make ends meet by doing what you love, becoming a billionaire/millionaire is just a bonus.
This is good news. The sad thing with Meego was Alien Dalvik never materialized. If it had, Meego would have gained traction then even without Nokia backing it up.
Zao, 22 Nov 2012Fanboyism is such a severe disease. I'm sure that Sailfish will be much more loved by today's ... moreI agree. It's the Cycle of the mobile tech industry.
Whats funny is how he acts like I hate Android when I just point out it's flaws lol
I am an advocate of advancing tech as well as a developer so obviously I like all the OS' even with their pros and cons.
If only people saw this like we do Zao, this world would be a better place.
Thephonegeek, 22 Nov 2012The O.S. looks certainly cooler than Android but a closed source O.S. Based on Linux is just l... moreSorry man, but with the GPL licence, and even with the LGPL licence, there is NO probability to create a GNU Linux based closed OS! They would have to take a BSD kernel for that, like Apple did to create Mac OSX and IOS.
And to another guy here, what and where is the problem if an OS can use apps from another OS? Blackberry 10 on Playbook is Android apps compatible because they share some UNIX links (QNX is a UNIX based system, and GNU Linux is a little cousin for UNIX). If they can use it for the benefits of both platforms, it is great. If not, well... It would be their problem, not ours.
[deleted post]Fanboyism is such a severe disease. I'm sure that Sailfish will be much more loved by today's Android fanboys than by me and even you. It's funny when i imagine having again debates with these guys in the future when they'll be Sailfish fanboys.
