While my Jolla still hasn't shipped, the community isn't sitting still at all. Sailfish has already been ported to Jolla's spiritual predecessor - yes, the Nokia N9 can now run Sailfish OS. The beautify of it all is that you don't even need to remove Harmattan, since it can dual-boot. It's relatively complete too, since GPS, A-GPS, Bluetooth, wifi and 'Calling Functions' are already working.

In addition, Sailfish' first update, version 1.0.1.10 has been detailed in its changelog - it's mostly a bugfix and stability release. So, when the pre-order devices arrive at our doorsteps, we'll have a software update waiting

Do not forget wine to celebrate and romantic music while installing the Jolla seed into it ;)

...and thanks to the nature of the package manager in Sailfish, users won't have to wait for the carrier to push the update or anything silly like that. ;)

So far all updates are coming from Sailfish repositories, carriers have nothing to do with them.

Yes, they started, but currently their reach is pretty limited. Nothing is available for US for sure, even if you buy it in Europe - current devices won't support US 3G and 4G networks.

So wait... I can't import the phone and use at least the 3G connectivity over T-Mobile AWS bands? I thought at least that was supported? I was hoping to do that, as I am not as concerned about the lack of LTE support state side.
