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? […]

I was surprised to discover that Android/Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s lockscreen looked really basic. By default, WP tells me a lot – calendar appointments and number of notifications for different items (oh and I can access my pull down notification when screen is locked).
