and I thought BB10 had a steep learning curve, this OS is confusing as hell to use.

If they can deliver something like that, I can see it selling like fresh baked cookies. I have a Galaxy S3 and what i miss the most is a good slide keyboard. Something like Corby Pro. That would be my perfect phone! And like me, I know many people who are missing hard keyboards. If Jolla can deliver... please do it fast.

For Jolla, again.

You don't care to count Windows Phone 7 among those with a new innovative UI?

Jolla/Sailfish is first device/OS since iPhone/iOS with real new innovative userinterface (I don't count n9, because it wasn't supported by its manufacturer, it was DOA product).

Like original iPhone, Jolla lacks features. 4G and navigation are on the way. Android support handles special software needs. My main concern is about basic applications. Does Jolla has enough resources for creating competitive sw. Current calendar and browser are very basic ones. I hope Jolla will get deals for example with Mozilla or other to help them. Native firefox would be nice!

Jolla is just very promising. It's still a beta version, but the OS looks so nice. I hope they will sell enough phones to make another investment in the OS and maybe an even better phone. I will buy this phone next year I think, it looks very nice and promising. Hope they can keep a regular schedule of updates to improve the OS step by step. It's a company I would trust with what they say. Keep on going Jolla.

Jolla took the opportunity of continuing the beauty of N900~N9. I will be eagerly looking for Jolla's success story with Sailfish, so that Nokia can repentant.

though I'm not Nokia fans, but I hope to see Jolla success. Nokia already sold their soul to the devil, hope Jolla can keep the spirit of the true Nokia.

The designed should be considered again. Many people didn't realize that when they buy something, design take a big part in decision.
