Developed by the Ex-Nokia Employees the first phone from Jolla is powered by the Sailfish OS that is developed using the core of the Meego OS. As we mentioned in the news few days ago that Sailfish OS will support the android apps & will also have the power of the Here maps from Nokia. So lets find out what does this phone have to offer which is powered by picking the best things from around the tech world.
Talking about the specification's then Phone feature's an 4.5-inch IPS qHD display with the 5-point multi-touch which will be protected by the Corning Gorilla 2 Glass. Now coming to the power section of the phone then it is powered by the 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Dual Core processor.

The phone will be powered by a 2100 mAh battery that will offer around 9-10 hrs of talktime. Coming to the connectivity part then it features support for GSM, 3G, 4G and LTE (Works on 6 continents). Users can have access to Bluetooth 4.0 and WLAN. On the smartphone's body, you'll find a USB 2.0 port, a standard 3.5mm 4-pin audio jack and a MicroUSB connectivity and charging port.
Available in 9 different, vibrant colors, the Jolla smartphone will first launch in Finland (Nokia's homeland) on wednesday and then in 135 other countries at a price of 399 euros (approx. Rs. 33,700). They just had the 450 phones on sale for Wednesday as after they will start shipping phones to the folks who have preorderedit from their site.
"The launch does not mark the end to product development, it goes on in cooperation with the consumers," Jolla CEO Tomi Pienimaki said. It is pretty clear that Jolla phone is entering in the already too crowded segment but featuring the support for android apps & having maps powered by Here maps makes them a strong contender in the market. As the people at Jolla even mentioned that their target customers will be the android users.
So looking at the features it looks promising plus knowing the fact that somewhere in the core it is powered by Meego makes it a perfect device for me, So i will be anguishly waiting for it so that i can taste it & provide you with some real experience about the phone.
