The first production batch of Jolla smartphones has been fully booked by consumers and selected sales channels. Jolla launched its first smartphone at the #JollaLoveDay event inMay. At the same time, Jolla kicked off an online pre-order campaign, which reached its first batch limit by mid-July. Online pre-orders were received from 136 countries in all.

I'm one of those who pre-ordered, so it's good news for me. They won't reveal just how many people placed a pre-order, but they do state that a typical batch (as mentioned) is about 50000 units.

sigh Looks like I'll have to preorder next time if I want one. ;)

It's for the best, I suppose. For someone like me who doesn't have a lot of money to spend on electronics, I should probably at least read the reviews of the Jolla mobile before considering getting one. ;)
