Jolla's first smartphone, running their new SailfishOS, will be released in Finland on 27 November. It will feature Nokia HERE maps, and the Yandex Android application store.

Currently featuring over 85,000 apps in 17 categories, Yandex.Store offers the best and most popular apps - from social networking and communication apps like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Skype, Viber and WeChat to games like Angry Birds. Yandex.Store will provide in-app purchase opportunities and is available on smartphones and tablets in 37 languages.

International, non-Finnish people who preordered (like myself) will be notified via email shortly. I can't wait. I'm getting the 'other half' in red and white (I get two of them as part of my preorder package) - or perhaps, hot candy pink? Any suggestions from you guys and girls?

1) I use the N900 as my one and only phone. I love it. But I've never felt that it needed more powerful hardware. It runs just fine and does everything I need.

I loved my N900 too, but it sadly died. So I actually not know if the Neo900 (if it will exist) or the Jolla will be a good N900 successor.

My N900 is chugging along fine, but I find I rarely use it even as a MID these days. My Nexus 4 (apart from lack of a physical keyboard) just does everything I need in a mobile device. I'm sure I'll end up selling the N900 one day for a pittance, so someone with nostalgia or a dead one can enjoy it more than I do.

Just as with BeOS, while I love the OS to this day, I rarely turn on my old machine that runs it natively. I guess I just don't have time anymore for that kind of fun.
