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.

I've tested it on a Nexus S and Nexus 4. It really doesn't matter so much about the raw hardware specs, as it is a very lightweight OS to start with. That's one of the things I really like about it, and why I'm only partly joking when I say I want it on the N900. Because lately, Maemo just seems so S-L-O-W compared to modern phones! I'd love for the N900 to have an OS as fluid and modern as Android on the Nexus 4 or Windows Phone on, well, any Lumia.

Anyway, because of its light footprint it can run well on very basic hardware. With Firefox OS I'd be focused more on screen quality and battery life than processor speed and RAM.
