PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless PocketNow interviews Marc Dillon, and there's an interesting note about why Jolla is keeping the display properties under wraps: "We're leaving some of those details out because we do understand that there are a lot of really big players in the market and they tend to take certain components in the market and dominate them. We created the ability to actually be able to run Sailfish on multiple hardware displays and be able to swap components, so this is part of the demand and supply planning phase. We are committed to this industrial design which is a 4.5-inch display, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a front-facing camera at the front, and the exact specs of the display we'll provide when we're close to delivery." Something you rarely hear anything about.

While Nokia never released actual sales figures for the N770 through N900 to my knowledge, I believe they pronounced themselves "pleased" with a few hundred thousand.

Jolla doesn't have to dominate the market with their first device; they need to make a modest profit to continue to their next device.

The G1 didn't conquer RIM, Symbian, and Apple, but rather a series of increasingly successful releases - the Hero, the Cliq, the Droid, the Nexus One - each built momentum that ended with Android's current 75% worldwide dominance in smartphones.

Jolla just needs a solid start with the Jolla phone. Thus far, I'm encouraged. They seem to be executing well thus far.
