Today was the big day for Jolla - they officially launched their first phone today, and a few hundred lucky preorder customers were invited to come pick up their new device at an event organised by Jolla and Finnish carrier DNA. Starting today, the rest of the preorder will also be shipped to customers (mine will be here soon too!). Now that the device is on the market, there's the user guide, which provides insight into how the software and hardware works.

The first unboxing video has also made its way to YouTube. Of course, the moment my limited edition Jolla gets here, I'll give you my first impressions.

I wanted to buy a cell phone for Xmas, but I prefer to wait some months until Jolla phones will be available for non-european masses ;)

Me too. If the phone turns out to be reasonably decent, I'd probably buy one.

Waiting too. Nice device even when I would prefer a larger 6-7' screen.

I'd love to get my hands on one; I'd drop my current phone in a heartbeat.

I think the Jolla phone's screen size is just right from what I saw in the unboxing video; I've tried a Galaxy Note 2 and it was just way too big, even for my large hands and bad eyes.
