Hello Friends,

This is a very interesting article, the Finnish mobile phone company Jolla unveiled on Monday its first smartphone running Sailfish OS, the spiritual successor to Nokia’s MeeGo.
A number of Nokia employees left the company last July with the intent of taking MeeGo to the heights they thought it was destined for. MeeGo had been jointly developed by Intel and Nokia as a combination of the two companies’ Moblin and Maemo projects.

Sailfish OS is based on Mer, an open-source OS that was part of MeeGo. The developers unveiled a concept device back in November, and the Jolla represents the actual product the company intends to ship.

The Jolla has a 4.5-inch “Estrade” display, an unspecified dual-core processor, 16GB of internal storage plus a microSD slot, and an 8-megapixel rear camera. The phone also has a stylized feature called “The Other Half,” a shell that clips onto the back of the phone and comes in colors including teal, red, and light green. Clipping these shells onto the phone also changes the color theme of the OS.

It is predicted to be in the hands of consumer at the last quarter of 2013, but I have very high hopes with this gorgeous looking smartphone with very neat UI.
