Jolla is a Group of Nokias old engineers, so it has a lot to do with Nokia, but I think Jolla still is not a Nokias partner, they are doing their own business.

The O.S. looks certainly cooler than Android but a closed source O.S. Based on Linux is just lame. Just lame.

Like Windows phone it's also not "Open Source." it is surely nokia's plan B. And it even uses ST-Ericsson Chips. Nokia announced in 2011 that they will use ST-Ericsson chips. It's a pity that this is a closed source O.S.

It has begun. :D

The takeover train has boarded and is about to depart.

This OS is sweet!!! For starters, it's like an upgraded Harmattan which is VERY good. I bet Nokia are smashing themselves with Cookie Sheets now.

Jolla has done it. :D

With the extra $240+ Million donation they received to make sure that this ecosystem doesn't fail, this will rival Android and may even surpass it in the future.

You see that little Android logo at 00:50? That's for the Apps that MeeGo can EASILY run seeing as it if the FULL Linux instead of Partial Java like Android is. MeeGo can fully run Android inside it's OS WHILE multitasking with other programs in it's own interface.

This isn't "True" Multitasking like Android's NEW "Multiview" feature you say? Well, let me burst that little old bubble because MeeGo has had Multiview since 2010.

Go to 4:10 for your oh so "New" Multiview feature from 2010.

This OS looks very promising and I can't wait until they release their devices running this.

I like Android but it's too resource hungry, not as much with superuser.

As of now, Android is unrivaled as far as Apps, now actual useful apps are closer in competition across the board. But once Jolla releases this worldwide, I think we'll start to see people developing and once XDA is behind Sailfish, Android will drop the lead they have drastically.

I'm definitely going to be developing my apps and features for this Sailfish MeeGo as well as for all the other OS'.

Good Job Jolla

SIDENOTE:
Once again for you all that think Multiview is new, MeeGo has had that feature SINCE 2010!!! HERE'S PROOF!!!

Go to 4:10 to see it
