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'm waiting for the same, but I had read at some point that it should cover all the bases.

I had pre-ordered the 40 option before they removed it, so I managed to get my Jolla shirt!

Not necessarily, since only latest & greatest Qualcomm modems support virtually all LTE bands, and Jolla might not use that yet.

UPDATE: Someone reported what's stated on the sticker on the box: GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS: 900/2100 MHz"

While LTE is supported in hardware (not sure which bands), current software didn't enable it yet, and it will arrive in the future updates.
