PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless After a few months of relative silence and vagueness, we're finally getting something tangible from Jolla, the promising mobile phone company which came forth from former Nokia employees. It's ambitious - they're not just going to create a mobile operating system, not just a mobile phone, but an entire ecosystem, including cloud services and data centres. At its heart? The beautiful city of Hong Kong. The prime target market? China.

Not sure what you mean by hardware specs, From what I understand Jolla is only doing the software. There isn't much open hardware for smartphones out there. If they really wanted to do it right, they'd be starting from scratch for all of the hardware ( cpu included).

Let's see... China, ARM, open-source...

That isn't open, its licensed by ARM. The drivers and what not are not open source. There is a project to write an open source driver for its Mali GPU:

But its still very experimental.
