We just discovered an issue in both and today which causes update of the store token required for accessing store repositories to fail. A fix for that has been pushed a few minutes ago: The update to version you might be seeing on your device soon contains exactly this one fix to keep store access working.

My Jolla arrived this morning, and I've been playing with it all day. It is by far the most exciting device and operating system I've used in a long, long time. When it arrived, the first update to the operating system was already waiting for me to be installed - and only a few hours later, another update is hitting the device. They have promised another large bugfix and stability update before the end of the year, with updates with new features arriving early next year.

These men and women know what they're doing. They're not overselling, and they keep their promises. A very promising start.

Potential customers are still customers, if there is demand.

No, they're still just potential customers, not actual customers. That's not saying they're not important but they're not the same.

I would say because the US is still a world player no matter how much you wish it wasn't.

I never said it's not a player, I said the U.S market is not as important as it once was. It's perfectly possible to be an important global player and make good profits without having a presence in the U.S.

why wouldn't they want to reach out to a large, consumer oriented populace?

Because of the stated problems with your patent system, among other things. Apparently the positive aspects of entering that market does not outweigh the negative ones at this point in time. Maybe your legislation will change (yeah right) or Jolla may at some point grow to such a size that they feel differently about it. That time is however not now.

so why muster up the effort to oppose Jolla coming here

I really don't care if they enter or not.
