In that spirit, we now have answers for those of you who have been waiting for the next Jolla Tablet update – thanks again for your patience. As already stated in our New Year’s post, we plan to ship an additional small batch of Jolla Tablets to early Indiegogo backers. And, for the rest of our backers, we now have a refund process in place.
They’re shipping 540 tablets – no, that’s not a typo – to early backers, of which I am one, but whether or not I’ll actually be one of the ‘lucky’ 540, I don’t know yet. Otherwise, it’ll be the refund program. I’m glad they’re offering this program, because the whole ordeal has been quite the letdown.
It’s very frustrating, as clearly there are many people like me who would happily buy a Jolla device if new hardware were available. Even though my current Jolla’s showing its age from use, I can’t justify replacing it with identical hardware.
Jolla needs licensing rather than individual sales, which has been their plan from the beginning. I hope they can still succeed with it. With Blackberry moving to Android I guess it’s the last QT-based phone available?
