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.

I simply don't understand this attitude; why wouldn't they want to reach out to a large, consumer oriented populace?


Because (especially for a small company) costs of fighting with those gigantic-patent-trolls simply outweights potential benefits? There are other markets and it seems that Jolla is doing quite ok in Asia.

This goes both ways (we may want netflix or whatever - not on the speed with those services, don't use them, netflix pops up quite a lot so I gather it's desired) but I don't see it happening anytime soon and huge potential userbase outside US is understood yet this changes nothing...

Quite OK? They will barely register, Android is all the rage.
