Anonymous, 15 Nov 2014I think people who are insulting this company have Apple-like expectations. Tone it down, lol.... moreIts ok to be skeptic, after all MeeGo was (and is, in many aspects) a very poor and immature OS, its a miracle that it has made it this far. I had N9 myself but i found it to be a big downgrade from N900, MeeGo was so crappy that i changed to Android and THAT was a big step for someone who sees Google for what they really are, oh my god how i hated their ads and fake search results (before the EU fine of Google for fixed search results, it was impossible to get relevant hits for example for free software, only paid and sponsored stuff made it through their algorithms at the time), only MeeGo was bad enough to make me take that giant step.
The world could have looked different today if Nokia had continued with Maemo and made Maemo6 the nextgen OS, imagine the complete and matured full desktop feature Maemo GNU/Linux with a fast modern dual or quadcore CPU with 2GB RAM, the best apps ever on a os (few apps but top notch quality) without a shred of intrusive advertising. MeeGo was dead even before Elop announced its discontinuation, Nokia barely put effort into it, Intel didnt put any effort whatsoever, all they did was whine like babies that it should use RPM instead of DEB binaries and then when they got it their way they stopped and never looked at MeeGo again, they only referred devs to look at the source of their old Linux project.
First send service center support t the countries that this phone has been launced... i'm stuck with a bricked phone!
AnonD-301563, 15 Nov 2014Looks like Galaxy Note Edge copy....How???
may be a tablet
I have a 9+years of mobile phone retail experience and i had owned a lot of mobile phones from Nokia 3310 to my present Jolla Phone. My previous handsets were Lumia 1520, iPhone 4s, Note 3, Nokia N900 etc. I can say Jolla is completley stunningly flawed. Not by design, Not by their uniqueness but in a market stand point. I have no clue what are their senior management thinking ahead? Is Jolla going to be a smartphone OS company or a quality device company or Emotionally Nokia brand survived company or so?
Sailfish is good in the core
good to have gestures
good to be unique
being unique should not mean being weird
when i compare what Nokia did with asha and android
they took android and wanted to be different and standout
they built something which has 50% similarity with other OS and 50% innovation
what Jolla is doing is
creating a product which is 50% weird 30% innovative and 20% similar to other OS
which translates into 80% weird product with 20% similarity
with this, where is this company going?
even if they build a tablet, phablet etc
they should create a user experience 50% similar to other OS 40% on native apps and 10% innovate
Looks like Galaxy Note Edge copy....
maybe the successor of current jolla phone???\
5-inch IPS LCD, 16M Color, FHD, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 or maybe 4...
up to 150Mbps DL, 50Mbps UL
support Bluetooth v4.1 + EDR, wifi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, DLNA...
16GB, 2GB RAM, Micro SD up to 128GB
12MP Camera, Zeiss Lens, Dual-LED flash, UHD Video, front camera 3.2MP
QSD 600 Chipset, quad-core 1.9GHz CPU
They all say "BIG" but their phones are rectangle and getting taller. Don't say BIG say TALL.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2014There are people who want change. every os didnt had a large base of apps when they were relea... moreVery true mate. I believe that symbian and meego os were the best in market.Look at N8 & N9 still running fast on single core processor with less ram while ios 8 still lags on some occasion with 64 bit cpu.
Looks as if the design would be much sleeker than the original Jolla smartphone.
I'm pretty excited to see what Jolla's doing next.
im good with my s5 dual sim. i wont update it and be in stock os. dont need new apps and games. pure phone satisfaction.
@ to jolla company
All wath am need is solid spec example nexus 5 + sailfish os menny pepole will by happy and me.
I am expecting nokia involvement somewhere hope it could bring smartphone battle to new levels
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2014Jolla!!!!... Even the name sux itself!... Get a life nerds and buy good phone with the same pr... moreThere are people who want change. every os didnt had a large base of apps when they were released. and about price, what does iphoes offer for the price they are asking for? the os is good thats why everyone buying it other than that the specs never amazed me. and it was also once a new os. People need to support new things then only it could grow. and there are people like me who needs some change and dont hesitate to spend for a good os of future.
Hope its not that BIG, i want 1080p around 4.7 inch (like HTC One M7, the perfect pixel density) and reasonable top and bottom bezels.
I donthave words still how stupid it was of Jolla to launch a qHD 4.5 inch last time... I think they ahve a deathwish, and if they really thinking of entering phablet market they sure have, the competition there is way too hard. They should go for niche markets, but not in lower midrange where their current phone is.
I think people who are insulting this company have Apple-like expectations. Tone it down, lol. Seriously, what wrong with other people being excited for this one when I see a lot of other people also getting excited for another same same Android device that just had a bigger spec than its previous model?
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2014Jolla!!!!... Even the name sux itself!... Get a life nerds and buy good phone with the same pr... morePretty sure it has more than 2 apps. Maybe your coment is better said to people who buy cheapo androids with 256mb ram, qvga, and single core processor............
AnonD-327328, 15 Nov 2014epic opening when the surprises turn's to be a Big failure.... seriously what the the differe... moreWell, in an age where physical buttons are said to be a thing of the past, Jolla managed to reach their kickstarter goal for a magnetic qwerty keyboard within just a few hours. So....
We should welcome these new platforms such as linux for phone, WP, BB, Jola and Tizen OS etc....Yes Android is doing monopoly plus iPhone is robbing the pockets of Rich and that should end that will be so interesting that every OS have equal market share
