According to the RBC Newspaper, The Russian Ministry of Communications has decided that the country needs a national phone operating system which accordingly will be Jolla's own Sailfish OS which has been built from the scratch and the ashes oc MeeGo after the death of the mentioned OS announced by Nokia as The Burning Platform.

I can't read Russian or Finnish, so I can't get into the details here, It's supposedly part of a greater push by Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa. Sounds like good news for Sailfish.

I don't like how South Korea keeps pushing Android.

They have Samsung and LG, so of COURSE they're going to push Android.

They were able to compete with the winphone o.s. for (third place in) market share with Bada/Tizen for a while but just not in Western markets.

While they haven't given up there doesn't appear to be any sort of significant push.
