PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Two weeks ago, as I was busy finding out in Vegas that double-shot frozen cocktails are a really stupid idea, a small Finnish startup unveiled their mobile operating system: Jolla unveiled Sailfish. With a strong focus on the Chinese market, the company is aiming to offer serious competition to Android's dominance of the smartphone market.

Honestly between this and Firefox OS, I'm excited to see something new and with the potential to be competitive.

bwa, it seems an awful lot like the meego UX (except you swipe up/down to switch between panes instead of left/right). It's a ui disaster (owning one for more than a year), flashy, but slow for the user to switch between apps. Still prefer a simpler webos style ui(which was hard for the processor, a problem qt would have solved). At least that one was consistent.
