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.

HTML 5 on one platform may not be the same HTML 5 on another. With different JS libraries to manipulate the DOM and interface with the hardware and OS.

It might not be, but you always gain from having more portable code. And the same goes for the design of the app. You can use responsive design. Which scales your application to the screensize.

Also there are design principles like degradation graceul and progressive enhancement which allow you to only support what a device supports.

Someone asked today in the comments about HTML5 apps for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Have a look at home easy it is:

It kind of depends on your app. Some apps can only be degraded so far before they are no longer useful.
