We have good news for consumers who are thinking of buying a new ‘and different’ smartphone – the Jolla smartphone is here and the company has started offering the same in its home country. Jolla is soon expected to be available in a number of other countries.
So for now, Jolla is only available in Finland, but it is soon expected to be offered in more than 135 countries around the world. The smartphone will have exchangeable covers that are available in a variety of colors but are sold separately. If you are interested in buying one, you can sign up for the notifications and Jolla will let you know when the smartphone is available. ‘We’ll notify you when Jolla is available to order,’ says the Finnish company.
Jolla seems to be really short and too abstract for a smartphone name. But that has nothing to do with the performance or the innovative features that the smartphone brings along. Similar to Blackberry, the company that makes this smartphone is called Jolla and their latest product is also simply named as Jolla.
Sailfish Operating System
One of the main reasons why you might want to buy the Jolla smartphone is to check out its innovative gesture based operating system. As mentioned earlier, the Jolla smartphone runs on Sailfish OS that can be considered as a successor to MeeGo.
You will be amazed if you do not know this, but the Sailfish OS has been developed by ex Nokia employees and heavily relies on gestures as the primary input method. Sailfish OS is also able to run Android apps and you will already be able to get access to over 85,000 Android applications through its preinstalled Yandex store. By the way, since Nokia is already in the picture, we want you to know that Jolla comes with Nokia HERE Maps pre-installed as well.
This is what Jolla has to say about its new and innovative smartphone and operating system:
‘Jolla is powered by Sailfish OS, a truly open and distinct mobile operating system. Navigate effortlessly with the gesture-based user interface and load the phone with top Android™ apps.’
