PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jolla has signed a Sales and Distribution agreement with D.Phone Group, the largest mobile phones retail chain in China. Together the companies have a shared target to reach significant sales volumes in China's 150 million smartphone market. The agreement is such that D.Phone will start sales and distribution of Jolla smartphones in China, utilising D.Phone's vast network of over 2000 retail stores to reach the Chinese consumers." Wow.

Member since:

belive that the first products will be of less quality (China),

iPhone and Lumia (unlike the N9) are done in China. Samsung Galaxy S3 probably too.

I really hope that in two years we will see them again in Europe

Have a look at my link above. The plan is to show the device(s?) end of this year and deliver it/them latest in 2013Q1 world wide what includes Europe.

The D.Phone deal shows that they have a working prototype which convinced D.Phone to sign that deal (a good sign of both, quality and progress).

Maybe a takeover by Nokia as there contingency plan?

Currently it looks as Nokia will not make it into 2013Q1 if they keep course, burn cash at high speed and cannot deliver anything till Lumia WP8 is ready what is to long, to little, to late.

Nokia has no say in JollaMobile else Elop would have killed them off already since they WILL sell better then Lumia (not so different to selll more then 300k with D.Phone on your side :-) ).
