Jolla Smartphone and Sailfish OS Ready For Global Distribution

Helsinki based Jolla recently announced its plans for an expansion this year. After launching its first Sailfish based smartphone back in November 2013 in Helsinki through local operator DNA, the smartphone was also put up for sale Online in selected European markets.

Jolla is also intending to release a Sailfish interface launcher for Android in the near future offering Android users to sense the Sailfish UI and it seems to be  a clever little idea to push the project, certainly.

Antti Saarnio, Chairman of the board of Jolla, noted: “We see this as a huge volume opportunity for Sailfish OS as there are close to a billion Android users globally. Many of them are looking for new user experiences to freshen up their existing devices.”

The company has also rolled out its three prominent software updates to the Sailfish OS since its release, that now stands at version 1.0. It would roll out its fourth major update in March, after that the software is commercially ready for worldwide distribution.

For now, the Jolla smartphones are available in Finland via local carrier’s DNA shops. The smartphones are also said to be obtainable to European users via the firm’s official stores for 399 Euros (approximately Rs. 34,000).

The company was quite restrained until now but it looks like it is very much delighted to pump up its trade this year as it is also said that the company is already in talks with partners including Russia, India and Hong Kong to sell Jolla phone online. The company has also declared new partnerships with Rovio, F-Secure Corpand Tieto Corporation.
