The Jolla's Love Day in Helsinki has already spilled some major news: pricing and specs for its first Sailfish OS handset. It'll be an original Jolla design with a 4.5-inch display, microSD expansion, an 8MP rear camera and Android app compliancy out of the box.

Why there are two phones glued together? :wacko: Does it open like Nintendo DS or something?

Jolla's heavily teased launch day in Finland has already spilled some major news: pricing and specs for its first Sailfish OS handset. The phone seems to be called "The Other Half" -- or at least that's the working title for now -- and judging from Jolla's Facebook page it consists of a colorful plastic case, in either orange or green, which hooks onto the main chassis containing a 4.5-inch display, microSD expansion with 16GB onboard, a "4G" modem (whatever that means), user replaceable battery and an 8MP rear camera. The chassis recognizes which case is attached and adapts the visual theme of the OS to match, creating "your other half, exactly as you want it to be." Perhaps more usefully, the Sailfish operating system will be also be Android app compliant out of the box, and we're currently on the ground in Helsinki trying to discover exactly how developers and users will be able to put that feature to work.

What do you think it means? It's pretty obvious isn't it?

I really liked the N9, so it's probably hard not to like Jolla. Could even be an interesting alternative to Android which is a bit...boring. :)

That design is horrible. the two phones glued together design is bad enough. but then you have rounder sides on the top, and rounded top bottom on the bottom... If for some idiot reason they do this different design, it should be the other way. It's like they're making a different design for the sole purpose of being different...

This has nothing to do with the N9 though, the N9 was Harmattan, and chances are you won't recognize much of the N9 interface in Jolla.

Nonetheless, I still like what I see and I don't want it to be Harmattan, I want them to take it up a notch which they probably have. The Android app compliance is also a welcome addition.
