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.

Yes. And (though I know it's not your style) perhaps a comparison of Sailfish, Ubuntu Phone, and FIrefox OS? When my contract runs out in a year I'm going to make a switch off of Android, and I'm torn.

I'm afraid that would be a bit expensive. Don't have any devices with FirefoxOS or Ubuntu.

I have a FirefoxOS phone:

For less than 2 weeks now, here is a mini-review:

I have Firefox 1.1 on my phone, Firefox 1.2 was released a couple of days ago. There is a new release every 12 weeks.

I like it, it has the apps I need and it works for what I do with it. I wasn't a heavy smartphone user before though. I don't notice any lag in the applications. Sometimes there is lag when it gets out of standby.

My biggest missing features are: copy&paste and text selection.

And I would really like some arrow keys on the virtual keyboard (which smartphone or tablet has a virtual keyboard with those ? Seems to me many don't. Sailfish has it by default).

Text selection is coming and after that copy&paste will also be developed on top of that. The release of copy&paste is on the roadmap for Firefox 1.5.

So I guess I'll have to wait till Aug. next year or something like that. Unless I help with coding. ;-)
