PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Two weeks ago, as I was busy finding out in Vegas that double-shot frozen cocktails are a really stupid idea, a small Finnish startup unveiled their mobile operating system: Jolla unveiled Sailfish. With a strong focus on the Chinese market, the company is aiming to offer serious competition to Android's dominance of the smartphone market.

For a last stand

Personnally, i would love to see Jolla selling more phones in China than Nokia next year.
This will be a profound, steep, wound to Nokia (and incidentally to MS), and show them all they have lost in "giving" the company to MS.

This can only happen in China, since Jolla has no other market to begin. And even there, it will be an uphill battle, almost lost on departure. But that's the best i can hope for Jolla.

Even if such a success can be achieved, i expect nonetheless no long future to Jolla, even if I hope i'm wrong. So it will be some kind of "last stand" for Meego, the old future of Nokia.
