We just discovered an issue in both 1.0.0.5 and 1.0.1.10 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 1.0.1.12 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.

Question: Are the FF phones all still using REALLY crappy hardware?

Not trying to dis the OS, it looks nice, but it seems to be falling into the same slum that befell those Linux boxes that the BB retailers would carry. Take a FOSS OS, slap it on out of date hardware that you can't move anymore, call it a day.

If they put it on something with decent specs at an affordable price? Say something similar to what I've been seeing the $150 Android phones, 1.2 Ghz+ with 1Gb of RAM? Hell I'd be happy to try it, especially if they come out with a slider, but so far all I've seen are phones that have worse specs than my 2011 LG I got for free from the prepaid just for buying a phone card!
