+ - Jolla Annouce Hardware for Their Linux Phone->

Submitted by Duncan J Murray
Duncan J Murray (1678632) writes "Jolla, the Ex-Nokia N9 employee spin-off, has just released some details and pictures of their first handset based on their linux operating system. It will run a dual-core processor, a 4.5" screen, have a replaceable battery and a micro-SD card slot, and will initially be available in Europe for EUR399. The main selling points are a multi-tasking user-interface which is capable of running android apps using an Alien Dalvik layer from Myriad group, and *cough* replaceable multi-coloured back covers.

The technology is based on the Mer distribution, using RPM package management and QT/HTML5. The OS is called Sailfish, and work is on-going to develop a common API for Ubuntu phone, Sailfish and Plasma Active."
