Jolla Sailfish OS Hands-On

Submitted by on March 6, 2013 – 11:27 am


At MWC 2013 , we were lucky to sit down with Marc Dillon, CEO of Jolla which is a mobile start-up based  in Finland. While Jolla might be new to mobile scene, most of the team previously worked with Nokia for several years before stepping out to start Jolla.If you were a fan of the Nokia N9 or any of the  Maemo or MeeGo devices , you will surely appreciate the approach Jolla’s Sailfish OS brings to the mobile arena.

Watch a nice 6 minute overview of the Sailfish OS presented by none other than the CEO Marc himself on a Nokia N950 developer device.

The Sailfish OS is based on Meego which was abandoned by Nokia as it switched to Windows Phone. Jolla aims to change the way consumers interact with a mobile device with the Sailfish UI and aims to keep the OS completely open.

The company is on track to ship a device later this year.Developers who are interested in this platform can download the SDK to test their apps.
