PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The day has finally come! Jolla has finally announced the launch device for its Sailfish operating system - and by god this is a looker. It's decidedly different from other phones out there, but it has good specifications and carries a relatively reasonably price tag - EUR 399, and it's up for pre-order today, shipping in the fourth quarter of this year.

1. Mer (Sailfish OS core) is glibc based. That makes it compatible to console GNU/linux applications.

2. Sailfish OS is switching to Wayland and Qt5 in the near future. I assume they will use Wayland already when the phone launches.

Some more information:
