He was the S40 CoreSW Integrator at Nokia as well as the Build Manager on Symbian.

Anonymous, 15 Nov 2013Jolla & tizen is the best os everReally now,when did you get your hands on both of them?
It would be nice if we could have a functional OS that prioritised power consumption first. Tailor it to lower chip.
why they are releasing this phone with below average specs? it is almost same with the nokia n9, check this : http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=5457&idPhone2=3398
ram is same, ppi is lower, a better processor and sd card slot after 2 years
this is the same argument made by symbian until it died a slow death"
In 2010 Nokia can easy go Android and even beat Sasmung ;) Nokia was the only company that had a chance to beat Sasmung or at least be a strong competitor, much stronger then Lenovo, LG, Huawei. Nokia as number one/two in Adnroid and MeeGo, very nice vision. Before Nokia/Elop let Symbian die, at that time, they selling more smarptohnes with own OS (symbian) then with Windows Phone! :D Maybe WP wasn't a mistake but only when you have a different (maybe own) OS, popular OS. The truth is Nokia was sold when Elop join...

I lost my N9 and have jumped ship to Samsung...now using S4 LTE and its living up to my expectations...its the best phone so far
Looks like a better version of Nokia N 9,with android apps. I think for telephony it will be the best one. I love to get one in Canada.
Great innovation,hope to expect more high end phones with eye catching specs from you soon. holla@jolla
Jolla is a great device plus the sailfish os I hope Nokia n9 gets a port of sailfish os soon which will be really great.
"Needs better specs", "old slow hardware".
People who argue like that must really be dumb. Try the phone first.
I personally believe that jolla sailfish does have much lower hardware requirements to work fully smoothly than android.
I think that android is currently the most heaviest phone OS and requires more hardware performance to work smoothly than any other phone OS.
now we do not have to keep using american OS, this new os looks promising as well as protecting of our privacy.
AnonD-83124, 14 Nov 2013Ahhmm, Why the high price for the low specs?
they shouldnt have such a big profit margin righ... moreProfit margin?
When you are a starting company ordering for example 100000 phones from an assembling company with a chipset X will be a lot more expensive for you than for example to HTC who will order millions of phones.
So I believe they don't do so much profit with this first phone, probably just enough to keep them running a little while and design the next phone.
AnonD-121984, 15 Nov 2013lack of a hd screen is a big minus n its really taking all the fun away, not expecting 1080p s... moreThe qhd resolution of the display in the Jolla device is a limitation of the qualcomm chipset used.
Samsung and HTC both use a qhd resolution in their phones using the same qualcomm chipset aka Samsung Galaxy 4 mini and HTC One mini respectively.(chipset has a variable clock speed)
Side note if you happen to live in Finland (I don't) the Jolla device costs just as much as the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and HTC One mini. Pricing is competitive with Android manufacturers as well.
Outside of Finland exchange rate and taxes will likely make it more costly than said Android competitors though.
I just want to congratulate you and wish that all will go well and have the opportunity to enjoy a jolla someday you in my country Venezuela sailfish God bless you...
lack of a hd screen is a big minus n its really taking all the fun away, not expecting 1080p screns but jolla plz give us 720p screens atleast
