    Default Jolla Mobile's MeeGo Powered Phone to be Launched Next Month



    According to a post by the Wall Street Journal Jolla will launch it's first smart phone next month. All we really know about this phone at this point is that it will be a MeeGo based smart phone running an OS codenamed "Sailfish". Everything else is still in the dark.</p>


    Don't know much about Jolla? *Here is a quick primer on the company. Jolla is a company started by a couple of ex-Nokia employees Marc Dillon and Jussi Hurmola. *With a goal of taking Nokia's abandoned open source MeeGo operating system and give it new life.</p>

    Jolla's is working on making their new OS a complete eco-system and already has stated that "Sailfish", will be ready for licensing by other device manufacturers, design houses and service companies in spring 2013." *Also Jolla has a deal in place with China's largest mobile phone retailer to sell their devices when they launch.</p>

    While Jolla has seems to be doing the right things to set themselves up for success in the mobile marketplace *the spot for the 4th mobile OS is filled with lots of open source projects like Jolla. Personally I believe that Jolla has done things the right way as far as partnerships and strategy. I feel that *Jolla find *success even if only in a niche way and wish them Onnea!</p>

    I hope they'll release the new phone soon. BTW it's Jussi Hurmola, not Jussi Hurmol. Finnish language is a bit difficult.
