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.

It's not a phone. It's a handset computer which can make phone calls. That's why I don't like the term "smartphone". It's a dumb term, which limits the idea of general purpose mobile handset computer. However communication is still one of the most stressed functions there, but modern communication is not limited to telephony and commonly includes e-mail, instant messaging, VoIP and etc. So a much better term that describes such computer is communicator.
