Press Release: Jolla Officially Sails in India

After months of wait, Jolla finally officially announces that they will hit India in a very short amount of time which is a fantastic news for Indian fans who were waiting for this to be announced for a long time now!

The press release announces that Jolla has partnered up with Snapdeal.com which is a retailer in India and will start selling through them. The pricing is unknown yet but considering the 349 Euros in Europe, we can expect something around Rs.28,400 for Indian customers.

Meanwhile the press release says:

New Delhi – July 18, 2014 – Jolla, smartphone company from Finland, and India’s largest e-commerce marketplace Snapdeal.com today announced an exclusive partnership to launch the Jolla smartphone in India.

Sami Pienimäki, Co-founder and CMO of Jolla comments: “India is the rising smartphone market of the world and we look forward to welcoming many new Jolla fans across the country. Since late 2011 when we established the company Jolla, we have received a tremendous amount of interest from India to enter this great market. In particular we have found it very encouraging how much there is interest and trust for mobile heritage coming from Finland, and what kind of development opportunities there are to start to develop e.g. local applications for India. We are super excited to be partnering with the market leader Snapdeal, who has extensive reach in the booming online commerce market of India. Through this position, we are confident to reach those interested in a true alternative to the mainstream players.”

Kunal Bahl, Co-founder & CEO, Snapdeal.com comments on this exclusive partnership: “We at Snapdeal.com constantly endeavor to offer high quality products across varied categories to our 25 million+ users at best prices. The smartphone category has been getting an extremely encouraging response on our platform. However the market in India offers few choices in terms of mobile operating systems. Jolla with its innovative Sailfish OS introduces an entirely new user experience to consumers. Jolla offers a unique smartphone experience both in terms of hardware and software. We look forward to a long term and mutually beneficial relationship”.

Who’s excited in India now and can’t wait to get this device in their hands? This is something to celebrate, eh?
