Jolla has announced the availability of Sailfish 3 which is its 3rd gen independent mobile operating system. The company says that Sailfish 3 offers a packetized solution for various corporate environments. It now supports several new Sony Xperia devices.
It comes with security features such as Mobile Device Management (MDM), fully integrated VPN solutions, enterprise WiFi, data encryption, and better and faster performance. Sailfish 3 adds a host of new features and improvements to the user experience: the OS has a new fresh look, a new top menu, new keyboard gestures, new camera functions, data encryption improvements, and USB On-the-Go storage, just to name a few.
The third generation also brings a clear improvement to the OS performance and the upcoming major Qt upgrade will further improve the responsiveness & performance resulting to 50% better overall performance. The company is introducing support for several new Sony Xperia devices and a free trial option within the popular fan & community program. Sailfish X is now available for the whole range of Sony Xperia XA2 models.
Starting today, users can download the free trial version of Sailfish OS and install it to their Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Plus, or Xperia XA2 Ultra. Users can easily purchase and install the Android app support and other commercial components to the Sailfish X Free trial version when it is available later this year.
Sami Pienimäki, Jolla’s CEO said:
Sailfish has come a long way, and now we are proud to start the rollout of Sailfish 3, the next chapter for the independent European mobile OS. With Sailfish 3 we are better equipped than ever to help our governmental and corporate customers to custom build secure and comprehensive mobile solutions.

In addition we’re very happy to extend our community program, Sailfish X, to support a range of new Sony Xperia devices.
