Hi guys the video shows tat Jolla OS is demonstrated using Nokia N8. By this v understand jolla doesn't need high end H/W to run smoother. So N8 users may taste this OS after release. Thank u.

Rather than making new hardware, it is better that Jolla make this Sailfish to work on existing Android devices which has kernel source or driver binares released because ST's chip is suck.

WP tails are a non interactive link to an app with information. Sailsfil multitasking presentation is a display of open applications not only desplaying information but also interactive. It is like a widget that is only there when the program is open. Fantastic Brilliant Perfect... Now how do i get that demo version for my N9 :-)
