Jolla Mobile‘s first smartphone understands touch gestures, Finnish tech magazine T3 reports in today’s magazine. Jolla Mobile CEO Jussi Hurmola revealed in T3 magazine that they are going to use touch gestures in their OS and relay on movement sensors. Jolla is launching it’s first OS in November at Slush event in Helsinki(tonistechblog will be at the launch event), their OS is called SailFish. Hurmola also says that “It’s the evolution of smartphone OS, similar when physical qwerty keyboard changed to touch keyboards“. For me this means that Jolla is bringing something innovative to it’s first OS and surely there’s not going to be so many physical buttons.
Jolla’s Sailfish operating system is being searched from Google (GOOG) more than Windows 8 or BlackBerry 10, according to JollaTides. It’s also noted that some of these OS’s has been available and showed to the people, as Jolla’s OS is getting it’s first public showdown on November at Slush event. Theres only one OS which is searched more than Sailfish and that’s HP’s WebOS. Seems to me that Jolla is gaining huge popularity among devs and normal customers. Personally i’m very excited to see what Jolla’s Sailfish OS have to offer.
Jolla Mobile is showing off it’s new device in November, according to multiple reports. Company has now raised €200 million from a variety of telecommunications-industry players to introduce a new mobile operating platform based on Nokia’s (NOK) technology. Jolla Mobile is reportedly revealing it’s first smartphone next month, according to Jolla’s CEO Jussi Hurmola. Jolla’s MeeGo based operating system is codenamed as “Sailfish” and it will be unveiled also in November. Let’s hope all the best for Finnish company Jolla Mobile and hopefully they will come out with amazing product and great new OS!
Jolla’s CEO Jussi Hurmola told in the T3 magazine interview that Jolla will support Android based apps. He told that Jolla’s smartphones are going to get technology, which allows them to use Android based apps. Jolla’s smartphones are going to launch at the end of this year and they are going to get html5 and Qt apps support. “Android and iOS has been the same for 5 years now and our OS will be much more modern, and we believe that we can much better job than those”, Hurmola told the magazine.
Jolla has said that they are going to launch 2 MeeGo operating system smartphones at the end of the year. “3.5-inch display feels too small for the touch screen smartphones”, Hurmola told. That in mind i think Jolla is launching bigger 4-inch display smartphone by the end of the year.
STT interviewed Jolla Mobile’s CEO Jussi Hurmola, and he told little bit of new MeeGo smartphone. “Our MeeGo phone is going to look awesome and it’s used by those people who wants to be stick out from the crowds”, Hurmola commented. He also promises that Jolla Mobile’s MeeGo phone is not going to be only for “nerds”, you can do things with it, but it’s also easy and fun to use.
Hurmola also commented, “Our OS is going to be different than anybody else’s. Example you can find 20 different Android manufacturers in stores, but they all look same. Android OS is great, but it’s been around already for 5-7 years and it’s getting old”.
Sounds great, but what is the final product going to look like and is it as good as Hurmola says? We just have to wait and see.
Jolla Mobile clinched deal with D.phone group in China and now they have told that they already has prototype phone ready. Jolla Mobile is founded by ex Nokia MeeGo workers.
