PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless At TechCrunch, Jolla's CEO Marc Dillon explains why his company will focus on China, Finland, and the rest of Europe first, ignoring the US. "The US market is not on the radar as yet, as he says the patent landscape there 'raises a barrier' of entry to newcomers (he's especially critical of overly aggressive use of design patents)." Considering the patent mess in the US is only getting worse, expect to see more of this in the future. Jolla is making a wise decision by ignoring the US - as a young technology company, you're far better off focusing your attention elsewhere.

Why not concentrate on giving us 6000 (or even 600 to start with) high quality, secure, native apps instead of a compatibility "layer" offering access to a cesspool of 700,000 (or whatever number Google says) crapsicle apps?

You just said it yourself: a whole boatload of apps immediately available vs. a handful of apps with a small trickle of them over time.

Sure, but you could also make a business case for NOT having 700k of apps that are basically worthless.
