2014 will be year of mobile docking.
and with 1440p screens coming, todays ... screens seems just not enough. waiting..
popye, 01 Oct 2013I'm more excited about the OS than the phone itself. same with me bro..
Indeed, the OS is the real culprit here and Sailfish blows Nadroid out of the water. The Nadroid app support is there to appeal to the scrubs who might otherwise pass on a wonderful phone, the rest of us know it's not necessary. Hardware is largely irrelevant as long as it has a memory card slot.
Can't wait to get rid of my POS Samsung. Android is like Windows Vista.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2013Allow me to dual boot with android and I might buy it.What do you need Android for ?
Actually very interesting setup. IF you're looking for a phone bypassing that Android bullshit and don't want to stick with Apple or Microsoft stuff either, the market gets pretty empty. And with empgy I mean REALLY lacking interesting devices.
There are some grandpas left running Symbian or you might try Blackberry but all of those are no step forward.
So now there comes a modern phone in perfectly pleasing shape (not too big or too small, just perfectly right) introducing a new ecosystem while STILL being compatible to Android for those who need.
I made my preorder. If it turns out to be crap, well that'll be a pity. But it's worth having a damn close look for sure.
All dreaming about the price....
for 400€ i can buy a iPhone 5s with 64GB, or Lumia 1020 or, Samsung S4 inkl. 64 GB microSD card... and and and... yeah...sure!
The Samsung 4 mini cost in Germany 350€ OK... BUT, dont forget... the phone have cost on Start 440€ AND Samsung and other Companys produce Million of Devices!!
Yeah maybe its little bit expansive... yeah AND? you all dont need to buy it! The plp what love´s the maemo/meego OS will buy the phone, because it is once of the friendly community world wide. 1GB to less? yes sure, if you have a android than is it toless, but not for Sailfish OS!!
i am happy to see a fresh new OS with no connection NSA/Prism... Android Apps working on a Sandbox ;) and i pay little more because the OS ist very great!

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2013I don't know why people are complaining about specs. The specs are almost identical to Sams... moreBecause the S4 mini is a mid range phone and its cheaper than this Jolla one. They need to adjust the price if they want to shift units.
maxes, 02 Oct 2013android apps are just for start Yes... Btw = Android apps on Sailfish is no comparision to the poor BB Android app support!! ;)
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2013"The global pre-order for the Jolla is over, but fins can still book one for €100." ... moreu forgot the other half and better camera and way better os and swipe gesture and real time multitasking and... its unlike ,u cant compare it with other smartphones
Stop unveiling pls bring it onto playground dude!
Im very annoyed wif ur unveiling yrs bak
The specs are not top-notch indeed, but hey, it's the first device of the company. They have to keep costs down, after all. And Sailfish is no Android, it will run perfectly even on this hardware. ;)
Should Jolla be successful, they will release more powerful devices in the future.
