Jolla has unveiled a new teaser image that suggests the ex-Nokia team will announce a new device next week. Although details are scarce, the tagline could suggest a new phablet or tablet device.
Jolla phone owners get ready: a new accessory is making its debut. The new illuminated and magnetically attached keyboard will be available in the next day on Kickstarter.
The Jolla phone is now available in India - exclusively through Snapdeal.com - for Rs.16,499, offering a dual-core Snapdragon 400, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera and a 4.5-inch 960x540px display.
The chairman of Jolla - formed by ex-Nokia employees, and which created the Jolla Phone and Sailfish OS - believes that his OS, not Windows Phone or BlackBerry, is "the third mobile operating system".
After launching in September at €399, Jolla has reduced the price of its Sailfish OS device to €349. The handset runs a Linux-based OS and is said to be the spiritual successor the Nokia N9.
An engineer from Jolla has tweeted to say that it is "unwise" to exchange an old Samsung for a new Nokia Lumia because "you may get Sailfish OS to it soonish".
The first Jolla smartphone is finally on the market. Jolla is created by a team of ex-Nokia engineers and the handset is running on Sailfish OS, a rebranded and upgraded version of Meego.
