This video shows off booting 5 different OSes on the Nexus 5. Why? Why not :). Never heard of FoxHound, I thought it was the title of the song used. Does Sailfish stand out? FireFox OS looks like the last thing I’d want to use.
Jolla raising money once more to add more storage and ever so slightly bigger battery, removes proximity sensor.
Jolla has been fundraising again. They’re pretty much at the 2 million mark. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/jolla-tablet-world-s-first-crowdsourced-tablet There’s a 64GB version for $249. Battery is up to 4450mAh (before 4300mAh). 150mAh on a tablet…will that be a visible change? The display is fully laminated, and that the tablet includes gyroscope and compass sensors. However, proximity sensor will not […]
12 hours to go: Jolla Tablet less than $30,000 away from reaching second Stretch goal for Split Screen
Jolla reached their first goal super quick when it first introduced the crowdfunding of their tablet. After the million mark, things slowed a bit and they had just made the 1.3M for 128GB MicroSD support. It wasn’t looking like they’d reach the split screen options (1.75M) and definitely not 2.5M for 3G variants. Well, colour […]
Today’s the last chance to tweet ‘#PeoplePowered’ to @JollaHQ and win a JollaHQ tablet. The rest of competition details aren’t clear. It seems it’s simply a tweet until the 7th December 2014. BTW, there’s only 64 hours left in the Jolla crowdfunding. They’ve got 1.5M for the first stretch goal. Why #JollaTablet vs. other tablets? […]
The Jolla Tablet, currently being crowdfunded, with over USD$1 million pledged so far (and still 18 days to go), has added Australia and Canada as supported countries that they’ll now ship to! The good thing here is that Australia and Canada were added because users asked for it. It really shows Jolla’s commitment to listening […]
This is incredible! Jolla sought out crowdfunding to make their first tablet a reality and well, it’s already a success! With a goal of $380k, the campaign not only reached that in less than 3 hours, but is already at $425k and it doesn’t look to be stopping! Jolla has added an extra perk ($204 […]
In a bid to spread more Sailfish love, Jolla’s made an Android Sailfish launcher that’s Angry Birds themed. The launcher can even launch the peeved poultry: “You can launch your launcher from the launcher, to launch your birds at the pigs – all from the new launch launcher” Source
For those who have been eager to get their hands on the Sailfish OS Hardware Adaptation Development Kit (HADK), the wait is over! Jolla today pushed out details about how you can build Sailfish for your Android device. Currently, devices supported by CyanogenMod (CM) 10.1 are supported in the HADK, and there are plans to […]
Earlier, we got news of a dramatic shift at Microsoft that potentially will see 18,000 employees displaced and forced to find other opportunities. Most of these will be related to the acquisition of Nokia’s Devices and Services business. We’ve also gotten word of Nokia’s Asha and X devices being ceased, as well as MixRadio now […]
Jolla has released an Alpha build of their Jolla Launcher to a limited number of testers in a closed trial. We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on it, and have filmed a little video of it running on the Nexus 5. http://youtu.be/wXjhC6LXefk The Jolla Launcher, for those who don’t know, allows Android users to […]
Jolla has just pushed out the Sailfish OS 184.108.40.206 update for Nexus 4. Remember, this is still an “under- development” and is not the final release at all, so there will be bugs. Few useful things to note in this release are the mention of HADK coming “very soon”and that there is now a “demo image” […]

Between developing native clients for apps like Whatsapp, to creating WiFi Hotspot apps that have been integrated into […]
