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.

Sure, mobile interface is more limiting. But it's not that limiting, as the OP implied.

You can also argue with OP statement from another perspective. We should care that it runs X/Wayland etc. for the sake of coherence with the desktop Linux. Synergy of technologies means sharing the effort. Common corporate world doesn't care or even rejects this, but Linux and free software world promotes this. Jolla positions itself as open source and community friendly company, so it makes sense for them to care.
