I think Jolla Sailfish OS will be a direct competitor for Android in the upcoming years. Good work guys.

this is so useless!
meego = fail
moblin = fail
LiMo = fail
fail + fail + fail = tizen OS = fail³

now this crap. sorry but this is typical linux. lets fork, lets start, lets invite the wheel new bla bla bla. absolutly no focus! that is why they are all failing. most never go over alpha status. alot of energy and time wasted for nothing!

and bada? most people stick with 1.1. some lucky guys got 2.0 now. i doubt that there will be a version 3.0 coming by the end of 2012 or early 2013. USELESS!

android rules the market because google stick to it. they are devolping, pushing millions over millions into the development and the marketing. same goes up to iOS. that is how it works!

now people are out there telling me that they won't invest a single cent for an android phone, a wp8 phone or a iOS phone because their OS' are not good enough. well than - wait for tizen or jolla - i guess you will use a public phone for the rest of your live. this products will never go live! and if they go online you will have no apps. just like bada. some people never learn!

Good job Jolla. I am willing to give it a try. Remember, everyone in this planet wants following in their smartphones.
1. Superfast processor. Fast is not good enough.
2. Fast downloading. It doesnt matter if its a single core phone. Your phone download and process faster than a quadcore phone will be very good so that who ever manufactures a quadcore processor have to think twice before giving their processor a name. Ive seen a dual core phone download and process faster than a quadcore phone. Its a fact.
3. More choice in the screen size. The lonely, stingy and a retina eyesight geeks will want a small size phone while the fat, ugly and beautiful will want bigger screen phones
4. Longer battery life. Choice of sim card slot micro and ordinary sim.

Good luck.

maybe if they use fingersense tech from qeexo, it would be great point of innovation for this sailfish.

Looks better than any other OS.
Now it's critical to unveil the first phones as fast as possible.

P.S. BB10 ripped off N9

Widgets + multitasking tiles all-in-one. What an innovative concept. If N9 had this ability then there's really no need for a homescreen anymore. To think WP had tiles for so long and never even thought of something as useful as this. So much for the big fuss over resizable tiles...
