PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The day has finally come! Jolla has finally announced the launch device for its Sailfish operating system - and by god this is a looker. It's decidedly different from other phones out there, but it has good specifications and carries a relatively reasonably price tag - EUR 399, and it's up for pre-order today, shipping in the fourth quarter of this year.

Exactly how is this phone "decidedly different"? It's the same slab of a touchscreen phone as every other slab of a touchscreen phone out there.

Well, the software makes the most difference here, but there's also another catch: you can apparently augment the phone with various kinds of active covers, like e.g. you can change the cover to one that has a more powerful flash than the default one, or to one that includes a hardware keyboard or gamepad and so on. I suppose you could just as well implement a cover that includes more storage space. That's a neat trick and one that will surely find its way to many a geek's heart.
