Finnish smartphone company Jolla has started taking pre-orders of its first device. Its phone, which runs the Sailfish OS and has a 4.5-inch display, is currently priced at €399 (£337) plus shipping. Full details aren’t known but it’ll run a dual-core chip and will support 4G. Availability is expected by the end of this year.
The core of the Sailfish operating system comes from the Mer Project, which is based on the work of the Linux-based MeeGo mobile OS. Android apps and HTML5 will both be supported by Sailfish.
Jolla was founded last year by a number of MeeGo specialists including members of the team that built the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9.
