[02/21/2014] Today’s Press News in a Nutshell

Awesome and exciting news today released from Jolla to impress us more and never fail to amaze the hell out of us!

As we come closer to this year’s MWC Jolla is already making a vibe by being as usual, quite unlike!

While every company is waiting for their events and they deliberately leak stuff to make people secretly excited,  Jolla decided to just bomb it out before everyone else and make some noise while everyone is expecting some quietness before MWC (Calm before storm etc!) so them being small, won’t be that much lost in between giants up there. Nice move I’d say.

But I suspect that is not the whole story or at least it looks like it. Or at least.. I hope not! Firstly we all now sure that Sailfish will jump out of testing phase and will be Sailfish OS 1.0

  Secondly we are now sure that Jolla phone will have an integrated cloud storage! (Cool!) with 5GB of free storage which is no surprise because well, if you register anywhere you can get that 5GB! I was thinking 10GB maybe? ;)

Thirdly we got to know that Jolla *really* is up for supporting great OtherHalf ideas! How? We will have a demo of OLED TOH made by Kimmo Lindholm at MWC this year:

 

Next, we all knew that they *will* announce new OtherHalves and we heard that from the CEO, Tomi Pienimäki which confirmed to us the legit news.

Today we eventually witnessed 2 new OtherHalves in Jolla’s Press page:

  1. Rovio’s Angry Birds OtherHalf

  2. Makia Clothing classy OtherHalf

Also from the press release today;

  • Sailfish OS will be released for Android hardware as soon as possible (Now that it’s not beta anymore)
  • Sailfish Launcher will be available on playstore/any other Android store so users can try the feel before flashing their devices
  • On the next update, we will have: “Extended landscape support, lots of visual improvements, lots of new camera functionalities, enhancements to the Jolla store, new general settings, and many more.”

Last but not least:
