Jolla is going to partner up with Nokia! This is the "BIG" thing announced.
My guess is new Nokia N1 tablet can also run on sailfish / Jolla
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2014...something big! Right!... They are going to announce that the company close for good! Becaus... morewtf is ur problem? so what if they don't sell like the big companies? they're a new business...why don't you want more choices and innovations?
Padmasana, 16 Nov 2014Would be a really bad idea to make a Jolla tablet right now. Agreed +10. OEMs on w/e OS should tighten up their "A" game on phones 1st before scaling up to tablets.

...something big! Right!... They are going to announce that the company close for good! Because the sales of the first phone was a total flop!! LOL
Numbers speaks themselves! People can tell a lot of crap! But reality in every years statistics says always the same:
65% use android
30% use ios
4% use microsoft
1% everything else
...and inside this 1% there are the 3 only people in the world that bought the first jolla phone! HAHAHAHAHAHAH LOL
They will talk about how different the OS is, how easy it is to use,that even lunatics can use it....and then use a screen with a pixel density around 100 PPI.
Anomynous, 15 Nov 2014Think of it as HTML5 apps being the intermediate stage then.
And meanwhile, what is Google... moreIt won't happen. But if you're right, I will keep the phones that I can use offline, and won't buy those without SD/internal storage.
And there will always be Android manufacturers (for example Chinese brands) who will continue to use SD cards and internal storage.
ALS, 15 Nov 2014every time there is news on jolla, you see a lot of traffic and comments online. it seems that... moreHi , Ofcorse we are . I think more OS options are needed Coz the ones available are kinda flat lining on What they Can offer . I think TIZEN and sailfish Could Offer something much more than current Options .

And meanwhile, what is Google doing? Everyone can see that they are pushing us towards cloud and web, the iron maiden is closing on us slowly but surely, the support for SD is diminishing fast, the internal storage is the next barrier to fall. Androids future lies solely in online apps, in fact iOS is our last stand despite its hate for SD and other external storage. I love my SD card and i have no doubt Google is the enemy in this regard, Android may look like your friend today but it is the enemy of your future.

My bottom line for Jolla, i think they blew their biggest chance by launching a device with so underwhelming specs, qHD isnt good enough for webbrowsing, even 720p barely is unless you use only mobile version websites (not an option for most people). The display is the most used part of a smartphone and failing in this area is not ok for most enthusiasts, and enthusiasts were the only chance Jolla had to make sales. Im having serious issues with my 768p phone, which is noticeably better than 720p, after downgrading from 1080p, going 540p (!!!!) is not an option, Why oh why did they do that epic blunder, failing so badly on the most important part? The slow start this caused was probably the last nail in Jollas coffin, they only had a steep hill to climb back then but now they have a whole mountain to climb, the hardcore Nokia fans are no more, they all moved on and converted. To use a metaphor: You just cant go back and sell bibles to people who have already embraced islam.

If not you should expect to cover the shipping expenses yourself. Thats not news, its the same for all products.

The best thing is when I have everything on my phone and SD card, and I can use everything OFFLINE and independently. (And that's why I'm going to buy a 10+ Watt solar charger.)
All the people talking about apps are on the wrong side of history. Apps are dead within 3-5 years. The web will be compatible with many functions we need from Apps. We are already hearing of Skype integration with the web that it will work from the browser. All of this is coming.
