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.

The elephant in the room is video though, sure a crappy CPU and a teeny tiny bit of RAM can surf all day on static webpages, heck I recently sold my 2003 Sempron and with even a CPU that old and a lousy 1Gb of RAM it'd do static webpages and webmail all day long.

But folks today want to be able to watch videos on their mobile devices and THAT is where not having enough horse is gonna bite it in the behind. IMHO the worse thing that happened to mobile was the press kissing Jobs' behind and letting him kill Flash (not a single media outlet pointed out how killing Flash gave him complete control with his appstore? Really?) because frankly H.26x is a pig. My 2011 LG can play SD flash without a bit of stutter but H.264 is a stutter monster, I can only imagine what it must be like on the specs the MozPhone comes with.
