The Aqua Fish is following Jolla’s “traditional” design which was found on the Jolla smartphone.
The phone sports a namely modest but practically beastly (according to my testings), Quadcore 1.3Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 (don’t let the 200-series name fool you. We’ll get to that in a moment!), 2GB od DDR3 RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 5″ HD IPS display panel with a resolution of 1280×720, a 2500mAh battery and dual-SIM support, all packaged in a neat package of black and orange plastic.
This looks a lot like the phone Jolla should’ve made halfway 2014 as a successor to the original Jolla phone instead of that silly tablet most of us are still waiting on and that nearly tanked the company. Sadly, this one will only be available in India for now, and there’s no word on further availability.
I’m glad there’s 3rd party interest in Sailfish OS, but I’m afraid the window’s already closed on this one.
Although I have never used Sailfish OS, it’s a shame this probably won’t catch on, it’d be nice to have some choice in the phone market…
Maybe the Jolla phone will be cheap enough to buy as a “mess around” phone.
Again, the same gloat tone. Sorry for referencing myself, but my comment from http://www.osnews.com/permalink?625220 applies here as well.
And guess what? No, this window is not closed, because there still are people who use Sailfish OS, and who are probably even happy to see third-party hardware after noticing that Jolla never really handled hardware part well enough. My Jolla works fine and needs no replacement ATM, but I will most likely buy another Sailfish-based device when I’ll need another phone.
