It must be one of the most anticipated OS launches in year 2013. Jolla told that they are going to launch first Sailfish OS operated smartphones in coming months. In this video (after the break), Jolla shows it’s Sailfish OS to Engadget. It’s already know that Sailfish builds on MeeGo quite effectively, and this video shows that there will be a lot appeal. As you know Sailfish will be gesture centric, and many native apps will respond to gesture commands even when those apps are presented as “cards” on the home screen. All the apps seems to be very responsive, and those apps you’ll see in this video are fairly representative in the final build of the Sailfish OS. Jolla won’t show us much in the video except contacts app, music app, photos and home screens.
Jolla launched today sailfish OS at Slush Event in Helsinki. Sailfish is based on MeeGo, and it will be first truly open source OS. Jolla told that their new UI is all about multitasking and speed. It all starts from home screen, and home screen itself acts like multitasking menu, showing all apps which are currently open, and they act like widgets.

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.
