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.

You live in a parallel reality. Nokia Chairman Risto Siilasmaa said that Nokia had to be sold to Microsoft because it was the only reasonable decision they could take to save what was left. That it not a success. That is a great failure.

I have never met anyone who had done as much work as Stephen has done

That's an actual quote with an actual source from the Nokia Chairman.

He went on to say the deal was motivated by Microsoft wanting a deal that made more sense for them rather than the other way around.

I'm not sure what you expect, that being bought out by a wealthier, larger corporation didn't align with the financial interests of Nokia shareholders?

The deal wasn't the only option, but it was the best one.

What do you expect for him to say after such disaster? "I was wrong and I ruined this company, sue me".
