My frend go jolla it costs 399 € that os is so smooth but there is some problems you cant use that at landscape mode some android apps crash but jollateam is making lot of updates i 'll buy jolla when that is ready i'm not going to buy beta version great work from finland
Just got my Jolla yesterday.
I like the design !!!!
Swipe gestures are really intuitiv, but it takes a few hours of practice. (was the same with the N9)
Everything works very fluent and very fast.
The whole UI layout is just amazing, compared to Android devices (a real mess!)
Some Android apps don't seem to work (flashlight says there is no camera/flash installed and a BBC Radio app just crashed), but since there are always three or more to choose from you will find one that does the job. And I am sure native apps will arrive pretty fast.
I am now waiting for all the other half's to arrive like a QI charging back, maybe a physical keyboard etc.
The first sailfish OS update arrived in the evening and installed itself in no time. Once it is out of beta it will be an operating system that will be a real challenge to Android, Windows and specially to the iphone (seems really old fashioned now).
I really like that there is a team of dedicated people that will look after this device and bring it to the top of the smartphone (Yes, they will!)
LTE chip is there, and when Sailfish is out-of Beta, it is activated.
Onnikoo, 11 Dec 2013Maximun size of the memory card is 32GB (Got the information from official Jolla Care by email)Sorry! 64GB memory cards work if they are on FAT32 format. Just tried it out.

Nice smartphone Sailfish OS that can run Androids apps, I hope they lower their price. So I can buy and try it.
sailfish update today,
Alan, 08 Dec 2013It won't run on an 808 pureview or a Nokia n8. Not enough RAM, and the CPU is too slow. Basica... moreI can easily remove the battery from my 808 PureView without any tools. Jolla phone too has a removable battery. Remember, there was a demo of Sailfish OS running on an ancient hardware, the Nokia N950? I think the OS is pretty much resources efficient like Symbian, so it would be possible to port it on Nokia 808 PureView but I shouldn't get my hopes high. Nokia already abandoned Symbian and I don't want an Android or Windows Phone. Will probably buy one Jolla phone as it comes out in Asia Pacific..
Protocol, 07 Dec 2013Can't wait for a detailed review of the OS. Perhaps, it's possible to port Sailfish OS to Noki... moreIt won't run on an 808 pureview or a Nokia n8. Not enough RAM, and the CPU is too slow. Basically, it's an upgraded Nokia N9.
For N9 users, it would sure be nice if we could upgrade to the newer sailfish OS. And the hardware specs look close enough to me...
But from the perspective of an 808 pureview or N8 user, it still "seems" like a downgrade, since there is no FM transmitter and the camera is lower-resolution. At least it has a micro-SD card slot though.
Can you replace the battery without any special tools?
Can't wait for a detailed review of the OS. Perhaps, it's possible to port Sailfish OS to Nokia 808 PureView? My fingers are crossed. This is the phone for me.
I think Jolla should release one entry level phone for the emerging markets under $150. It will enable people like myself to try the OS and will help Jolla get some market share. Nokia Lumia 520 offers stellar specifications at a beautiful price and perhaps it's the only phone that helped WP8 gain market share. Keep your fingers crossed
I think I might be sold. Old Nokia developers and team - yes!! smart OS - smart link to android. A few good solid ticks here. Ill just wait for a model or two as it can only get better after the first cab of the rank.
Well done. Keep up the good work.
