We just discovered an issue in both 1.0.0.5 and 1.0.1.10 today which causes update of the store token required for accessing store repositories to fail. A fix for that has been pushed a few minutes ago: The update to version 1.0.1.12 you might be seeing on your device soon contains exactly this one fix to keep store access working.

My Jolla arrived this morning, and I've been playing with it all day. It is by far the most exciting device and operating system I've used in a long, long time. When it arrived, the first update to the operating system was already waiting for me to be installed - and only a few hours later, another update is hitting the device. They have promised another large bugfix and stability update before the end of the year, with updates with new features arriving early next year.

These men and women know what they're doing. They're not overselling, and they keep their promises. A very promising start.

Even more reason to completely ignore the US market. It's simply not worth it.

It's not fair for their users in US. It has to be addressed, but with caution.

Uh, they don't have any users in the U.S.

It does? Why? With access to markets like Asia and Europe that greatly outnumber the U.S why would they bother?
The U.S market is simply not as important as it once was.

Wow...the very same attitude that Europeans claim Americans suffer from, coming from a European. Stay classy, dude.

Small-mindedness is small-mindedness, no matter which side of the pond you're on.

Do you have examples of what you mean?
The attitude here is: the US has such a stupid minefield of patents that it is not worth it to enter it until you have a big warchest with which to pay for those millions of lawyers you are going to need.
The attitude Americans suffer from: we are number one

Didn't you get the memo? Double standards equal enlightenment now.

P.S.
I sure hope you're prepared to be modded down to oblivion and/or dogpiled by the "Rah-rah, EU #1!" folks.
